Dear Editor:

On Saturday, January 21, I participated in the Women's March on Washington. Along with thousands and thousands of women and a few good men (including my husband ) we experienced and embraced our democracy. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. I marched for my daughters and granddaughters and everyone else's as well.

Even though it was a "protest," it didn't feel that way. The crowds were exuberant and we all shared the feeling that we were participating in something positive for our country. We made a very strong statement that women's rights are human rights . It was a very large support group committed to making a difference. I have never felt so connected to so many. We met and talked with people from all over this country. We felt so empowered and believed that together we can make a difference. We shall have to see if that is true, but after Saturday, I feel hopeful.

What Is Your Bottom Line?

This week's Parshah (Torah reading) is the Parshah of Pinchas the Zealot: the courageous young priest who stood up against idolatry and immorality and, in the end, saved Israel from a devastating plague.

In a 2017 report Freedom House said that of the 195 countries assessed, 87 (45%) were rated Free, 59 (30%) ...
