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 

Today is Yom Ha'Atzmaut, Israel's Independence Day.  It is a difficult day to explain in he diaspora to Jews who have not had the opportunity to celebrate Israel's Independence Day in Israel.  It feels different than July 4th.  There are no sales in stores in Jerusalem, no additional incentives to purchase cars.  I don't remember parades either.  The parade of Israel's Independence is us, the Jewish People, celebrating our control of our destiny through barbecue and parties outside in parks and inside our homes.  Yom Ha'Atzmaut is a long Hallel and Aleynu, we glorify and praise our common tradition, our common origin, and declare that it's all on our shoulders.  As we recite in Hatikvah, the greatest modern piece of Jewish liturgy, "Od lo avdah tikvateinu - Our hope is not yet lost, It is two thousand years old, To be a free people in our land, The land of Zion and Jerusalem."  We are a small people, clutching onto our tradtion and ever changing.  Today we declare to one another that self-determination has been a glorious decision.  It is a decision we must continue to value and dedicate ourselves to protecting.  Statehood is a privilege and a responsibility.  There is much work still to be done, but today we can stop and celebrate the realization of this ancient, improbable dream.  

 

Happy Birthday Israel!  I love you.

 

Happy Yom Ha’Atzmaut,
