Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (11/9/2012)
Thanks to everyone who voted in the Presidential election. No matter the party you are registered with nor the presidential candidate you voted for, it is important that you let your voice be heard by submitting a ballot. And hopefully, no matter if the candidate(s) you voted for won or not, you woke up Wednesday morning with an appreciation for America and our system of governance.
