TORAH PORTION
 
Yom Kippur ... Holidays
Deuteronomy 29:9-14, 30:11-20 (Morning) and 
Leviticus 19:1-4, 9-18, 32-37 (Afternoon)
Surely, this Instruction which I enjoin upon you this day is not too baffling for you, nor is it beyond reach. - Deuteronomy 30:11
SUMMARY: 
Yom Kippur morning: In the final address by Moses to the Children of Israel, we are reminded that each and every one of us is a member of the Covenant. From our ancestors at Sinai to this very day, each of us is the heir to this sacred tradition. Our tradition is neither too difficult to learn nor too cumbersome to follow. Regardless of our station in life, Torah belongs to all of us. Finally, we are exhorted to "choose life," to love God, to walk in God's ways, and to keep God's commandments. By doing so, we open our hearts to God and to each other.
Yom Kippur afternoon: In the climactic chapter of the Book of Leviticus, we read that each of us can be holy. Each of us has the capacity to bring holiness into our lives and into the lives of those around us. Every act, great or small, can bring us closer to the sacred. We are instructed to leave something from our fields for the poor and for the stranger. We are told, "You shall not insult the deaf, or place a stumbling block before the blind." We are reminded that we were once strangers in the Land of Egypt and so we must love the stranger. As the Torah reading on Yom Kippur reminds us, each of us is capable of doing this. The way to a life of holiness is by sanctifying each moment of our lives.

NERTY TRIP TO COLUMBUS
 This past weekend, NERTY (Ner Tamid Youth) took a trip down to Columbus, GA to join up with two other youth groups for a "mini nifty" eve nt. Early Saturday morning we packed our bags, and NERTY departed for Columbus. Upon arrival, with the help of Rachel from ISJL, we tied super Heros Into our own strengths and weaknesses. We learned that even though our strengths hide our weaknesses, they will still be a part of us.

 Later that day, we went to Fort Benning, an Infantry Museum. There we saw the kind of housing the troops would have on an on site fort during battles; we learned about the equipment the army wears (weapons, gear,vehicles, etc.)and how its upgraded over the years. At the end of our museum tour, we watched a film about D-Day, the planning and communication that went into it.

Back at Temple Israel waited two men who had been in service for the military. The older gentleman had retired after years of service and still
had his uniform at the ready for his country. The younger gentleman,
married with kids, is a medic who is still in service and has been
all over the world for his country. We got to talk to them for a
bout two hours, asking anything we wanted.

 After a late night, and an early morning, we went back to Fort Benning ,where bagels had been donated from local grocery stores. Together, the fourteen youth group members set up trays of bagels, bowls of cream cheese and of peanut butter, and a table of pi nk l emonade. At 9:00, 515 soldiers came  runni ng out of Sunday morning service to eat. Because we brought
|them food, they got an extra half hour to relax. It was a very powerful experience, and we'd love to go back with a larger group.
