Just a short note -- a year ago today, a terrorist bombing at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem took the lives of 9 people, including two young American students who were studying at the Pardes Institute. One of them, Benjamin Blutstein, was the son of people I know in Pennsylvania, and it was a tremendous shock to see his name in the list of the dead. May their memory be for a blessing. For a moving statement on the attack and its impact upon the university, see the article by Menahem Ben-Sasson, The tendency of memory.
