thought for the day, by former chief rabbi lord sacks

“… absolutely shocking and a profound indictment of our society that elderly married couples are being split and separated against their will when one or both has to move into a care home.
Togetherness is good for the body, not just the soul. The Bible puts it simply: ‘Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me’. We can face the future without fear when we know we will not face it alone.”
