Shabbat Candle Lighti
on Friday, January 11, 2019
My Dear Friends,
Recently I had the opportunity learn with some of our Boy Scouts who were studying for their Jewish merit badges. We look at some of the wisdom literature of Judaism that is contained in Pirket Avot (the Ethics of the Fathers).
One passage that stood out to me was the following: Rabbi Ben Zoma taught: Who is wise? One who learns from every person... Who is strong? One who overpowers his or her inclinations... Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his or her possessions... Who is honorable? One who honors their companions."
As we enter a new year and install a new set of leaders in our congregation, I thought this teaching might be something that we as a congregation and members of a larger community might consider. How current is this ancient text? It encourages us to have the qualities of listening, learning, satisfaction, acceptance and inclusivity. These are all qualities we should hope to display and model in every interaction we have.
May we each do our best to rise to the challenge of Rabbi Ben Zoma and consider these ancient questions.
I look forward to continuing seeing you this Shabbat as we welcome our new Board of Congregation Ner Tamid.

I would love your support as I "pedal for pups" for my Bar Mitzvah project!
I will be biking 150 miles over a 4 month period to raise $1,500 for a much needed
new shed at Bosley's Place, a nursery for homeless and orphaned neonatal and underage puppies located in Smyrna, GA.
