A few months later President Abraham Lincoln dedicated part of the battleground as a cemetery for the fallen soldiers. Lincoln remarked, “we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.” Across America the first communal purchase by Jews was the cemetery. How does the Jewish view of the cemetery compare and contrast with that of President Lincoln? Sources will be sent out next week. Breakfast sponsorships available _______________________________ Please be vigilant and use the crosswalks. In particular, be careful not to cross Dunhams Corner Road directly in front of the Shul.
