Yesterday, July 27, 2023, was a momentous day filled with significance and joy. On one hand, it marked the 9th of Ave, a day dedicated to remembering the destruction of the first and second temples and the fall of Jerusalem. According to the Kaballah, on this day the seeds of Jewish redemption are sown with hope for the coming of the Messianic era.

It was also a day of celebration as we proudly honored Asaf’s official graduation from Taft law school. Asaf took the stage as the keynote commencement speaker, delivering an uplifting and inspiring speech. Words cannot adequately express how immensely proud I am of my son, who is not only my best friend but also my guiding light We were honored to have our dear friends Judge Andy Guilford and Jim Riordan at the ceremony.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’ –Numbers 6:24
