A Message from Our Rabbi
August 5, 2020
“And now, O Israel, what does God demand of you? Only this: to revere God, to walk in God’s paths, to love God, and to serve God with all your heart and soul.”
What if we lived in such a way that before everything we did, and before everything we said, we asked ourselves if it would add to the holiness of the world, or detract from it. What if we asked ourselves every day if the path we are taking, how we are walking through life, feels sacred or not. What if we challenged ourselves to understand what it really means for us to love and serve the Divine presence in the world with our hearts and our souls. What would we do differently? What would remain the same?
Friday evening at 6:30 pm, we will be celebrating Shabbat Mishpacha, our Family Shabbat Service. The service is suitable for people of all ages (kids and adults!) and it features explanations of the prayers we say and the meaning behind the rituals we share in on Shabbat. There is also a short Torah reading, a story suitable for all ages in place of a sermon, and lots of singing! (Zoom; click HERE for updated online siddur.)
I will be joined by Cantor Harrison, Jill Moghadam (our Director of Education and Youth Programming), Adam Roth (Assistant Director of Education, and our Special Needs Coordinator), and Stacey Unterlack (the Assistant Director of our ECC).
Shabbat morning, Scott Kushner will lead our Spice Up Your Judaism session at 10:00 am (Zoom). And at 8:00 pm, join us for Havdalah on Facebook Live.
