Happy Canada Day!
I have always felt an affinity for Canada. I’ve enjoyed some wonderful vacation time there and found the place warm (metaphorically) and welcoming. It’s also a beautiful country with much to see and do.
I’m always very excited to return. This autumn I’ll be in Toronto as a visiting rabbi at Oreynu, the Secular Humanistic congregation there. And once again I’ll thank our northern friends for accepting me as 100% human and deserving of 100% of my human rights. So Happy Canada Day to all my friends there. May your Maple Leaf Banner wave joyfully today!
