The two recent Force 5 hurricanes, Irma
and then Maria, caused tremendous destruction on many Caribbean
Islands. We were particularly distressed by the damage to the US Virgin
Islands, where we lived for a number of years. The Hebrew Congregation
of St Thomas is working to help repair the damage and to bring aid to
those in need, both of the Congregation and of the general
public.We send them best wishes for a speedy recovery.

times when we lived in the Virgin Islands.
