While we can't figure out everyone's reasons or motivation, the Shul
is the best place to start a re-education. The rabbi should be
encouraging this preservation of the past so as to teach everyone what
can happen in the future. Even if everyone of the congregation is
encouraged to spend a short time helping, it would be good for the
soul. We don't have to accept what is. We can make even small
changes in what can be.
