    A wise choice you three have made - choosing democratic, multicultural Australia as your homeland instead of opting for a theocratic apartheid state in the Middle East. Congratulations. BTW, I read the good news article on Haaretz today. "Virginia Synagogue doubles as Mosque for Ramadan." It reminds me of something an Australian Rabbi, Fred Morgan, said on an ABC radio program last week, The Spirit of things/"Stairway to Heaven." The discussion was, the concept of heaven. The Rabbi told of Jewish story. Heaven and Hell. A man dies, and is taken on a tour to Hell by an Angel. He sees a wonderful banquet, but everyone was struggling to feed themselves with long handled spoons, too long to reach their mouths. When the Angel takes the man to Heaven, he sees the same beautiful banquet, the same long handled spoons, but everyone was serving one another. A happy an peaceful Jewish New year to you all.
