Mazal Tov "Judah"

This morning Judah put on tefilin for the first time. It is heard to believe that he is almost bar mitzvah; he first joined our family when he was 5.

Although Judah has not yet found a foster home, he has been "adopted" by an entire community and many of the amazing people who have looked after him for the past two years were in attendance this morning.

Judah is an inspiration to all who know him. His strength, persistence and emunah in the face of unimaginable adversity is beyond comprehension. We all wonder how we would have reacted to circumstances as difficult as his.

We are looking forward to his bar mitzvah is a few weeks and we continue to daven that he will find a permanent home soon.
