From The Rabbi's

Desk

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. I hope you will make resolutions in 2015 that are successful and nurture your soul. My 2015 resolution as your Rabbi at RPJC is to develop a comprehensive plan that will guide our congregational family towards a greater level of spirituality and camaraderie in many different ways over the next five years.

The Midrash tells us that the burning bush had been there for a long time. It was well known to the local shepherds and many people came to see the burning bush. So what set Moses apart from the local shepherds when he saw the burning bush? Moses decided to look closer and investigate. He dedicated extra time to look into something different.

The civil calendar marks the end of the year 2014. As with every year, many of us will again think about New Year Resolutions - getting fit, managing stress, eating healthier, or volunteering to help others. The list is the same almost every year.

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.
