From The Rabbi's

Desk

In the world of medicine there is a term used more frequently than it was a generation ago. It is “deficiency diseases.” The science of medicine has made marvelous strides in remedying deficiencies in the human body. There are ills that are not due to infection, but to the lack of necessary ingredients in the body. Vitamins and other aids have helped in this advance.

There are also deficiency diseases in the spiritual life as well.

A good part of our problem in the Jewish world today is a dangerous shortage of knowledge of our faith and heritage. In a recent survey among 180 Jewish teenagers, one-third indicated that they did not know what being Jewish meant; another third said that being Jewish means “it’s a religion” while the final third indicated that it is something “to be proud of.” h

Our Jewishness is more than just a creed; it is ourselves, our totality. Judaism is much more than poetry for rare moments; it is really the ordinary language for everyday living.

Daily Minyan Urgent Request

The morning and afternoon minyans are fragile and exist without a strong safety net of men to make a minyan if some of our regulars do not come.

If you are observing the yahrzeit of a loved one and it falls on a day when we do not have a minyan you would be upset and rightly so. We need you not only when you are observing yahrzeit, but a few days each month to insure that someone else will be able to say kaddish. A few days each month is not too much to ask.

By doing a mitzvah, you will be rewarded with a bigger mitzvah. Please contact the Rabbi or the Center office with your name and phone number; & when and how often & what time (morning/afternoon?) you can commit.
