The French are once again at the barricades. There are Bastille Day celebrations wherever the Allies have liberated the country. In Paris, the day has inspired the Resistance to rise up against the Nazi occupiers. And who can forget that scene in “Casablanca” when the French drown out the Germans in Rick’s café by singing the Marseillaise. And who can forget the look of pride and love in Ingrid Bergman’s eyes watching her husband lead that act of defiance.
Light the Sabbath candles. Surely the end of the war is near.
