The Charlotte Jewish News - June-July 2014 - Page 12 Liberty Shabbaton at Ohr HaTorah dongregation Ol^rMaT orah (1 project o/Lubdvitch of North Caro/ttici On Friday, July 11, Congrega tion Ohr HaTorah will host a spe cial Friday Night Shabbaton dinner. The theme of the Shabba ton is Liberty as we celebrate our independence and thank God for the freedom we enjoy in our coun try which encourages religious freedom and allows us to practice our Judaism with pride. Today, more than ever, we rec ognize that freedom cannot be taken for granted and that we cherish our liberty and freedom to practice our Judaism unimpeded. We, the people of the United States and especially Jews in this country, thrive as religious free dom is enjoyed by all of us. This freedom is still elusive to many people in other parts of the world. By Divine Providence we live in this great coun try, most of us by the sac rifices that our parents, grandparents, or great- grandparents made to ar rive at these blessed shores. But it was not easy and much was lost in life and pos session in order to reach our goal of freedom and prosperity. So, it’s not by coincidence that this happy and celebratory Shab baton falls on the Shabbat before the 17 th day of the Hebrew month of Tammuz when we usher in the three weeks of mourning. It is during these three weeks that we lament the destruction of Jerusalem of old. This Shabbat serves as a day of hope and yearning: hope for a bet ter future and yearning to return to our promised land and to see the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
