Prayer Book

Outline for Shabbat Prayer at Home

 

Moses tells us, "God is the One who goes before you; God will be with you... Do not fear and do not be dismayed." (Deut. 31:8). As we move forward reopening the synagogue for Shabbat Services, there is a tremendous sense of excitement and optimism that permeates our community. As we return to the synagogue, we must do everything possible to remain safe and everything possible to facilitate community. The Jewish Tradition demands both of us.

Shabbat Experience

Commentary on the Parshat 

This week I'd like to focus on the Haftorah, which can be found in Jeremiah, my favorite of the great prophets.  He closes the Haftorah by saying "Heal me O Lord, and let me be healed..." (Jer. 17:14)  During the last year, many of us have prayed for healing, "Heal me O Lord."  For the last year, our morning minyan has ended each service with reciting a prayer for healing.  This is clearly referring to illness.  So, the second clause, "and let me be healed," must be referring to a slightly different idea.  Allowing ourselves to be healed means that we do everything within our own powers to achieve health -- whether it be physical, spiritual, or mental.  While many around the world struggle to get vaccines, we have appointments available to us.  While many strive for spirituality, we have beautiful courtyard services open on Shabbat morning.  While many face internal conflict without help, we have the Prophets of Israel to help guide us.  Sometimes, unfortunately, all of it is still not enough.  Yet, Jeremiah stands as an example for us that it is always a two-way street.  We have to want to do it, as a community, as a country, and as a people.    May this be a Shabbat of healing for all.

 

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Nolan Lebovitz
