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 we read Parshat Devarim and begin the final book of the Torah. It always makes me sad to begin Devarim, knowing that soon we will have to say goodbye to Moses (even if it is only for several months!). By the beginning of Deuteronomy, Aaron and Miriam have passed and Moses remains alone. Older and alone, Moses seems more reflective and aware than he did decades before. Unlike any other character in the Hebrew Bible, we watch Moses grow up, we walk with him in the desert as he matures, and we grow old with him each year. Even though we are months away, this Shabbat I will be thinking about Yizkor on Shmini Atzeret, when I always think of Moses, only hours before Simchat Torah, where we finish and begin the Torah anew. Moses teaches us so many lessons. Perhaps his most important is that we all have a last book, or a last chapter, or a last sentence. So we might as well craft a great one.

 

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Nolan Lebovitz
