L'Shana Tovah and Eid Mubarak!

A timely note from my colleague, Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish MD, MPH at the Global Health Division - Dala Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto:

This week we as Jews and Muslims celebrate holy holidays that come together at the same time.

Rosh Hashanah and Ramadan Feast help us focus on our commonalities and give hope that wisdom prevails and we have all days as holidays: Days of happiness, joy, prosperity and peace for all.

(I am off duty for the holiday. Will moderate your comments tomorrow night.)

All best wishes to you and your family for a happy New Year. A friend and neighbor (and amazing early childhood educator) is beginning stem cell therapy tomorrow - she is a BIDMC patient. Today she had the special joy of seeing her first grandchild, born by special arrangement before she goes in. You and your staff do very special work.
Best regards,
