The sages tell us that the broken sound of shofar should sound like Sisera's mother while she awaited the return of her son, General Sisera, a murderer. Some communities blow the shofar 101 time on Rosh Hashanah. They teach that one hundred of the blasts are too drown out the memory of Sisera. But we must remember, on the 101st blast, the pure pain of a mother that has lost her son.
With this ethical teaching in mind, I was appalled by the TV pundit who. last night, said we should be ecstatic over the death of Bin Laden.
Pray for peace.
