The money we raised has finally reached its destination

The money we raised has finally reached its destination. See this announcement. It was a herculean labor getting the money over there, but now we can all breathe a long sigh of relief.

However, there’s still work to be done. We want to post on a wall in the hospital the names of everyone who contributed.The more names posted, the greater the spirit of solidarity that’s conveyed to the people of Gaza.

But if you strongly object to having your name posted, please send us an email now.

Norman started posting a new Byline series on the “New Anti-Semitism.” He hopes you find it useful. He’s currently working on a long article for Byline on academic freedom. He says it will take some time to complete, so please be patient.
Here’s a song to all of you, for this holiday season:

Pete Seeger & Judy Collins
Turn! Turn! Turn!

Everything about it is beautiful: the performers, the music, the lyrics.

Norm says: “I’m not formally religious, but may God bless all of you.”
