SHABBAT BALAK - JULY 3-4, 2015 - 17 TAMMUZ 5775

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

SHOW YOUR AMERICAN PRIDE!

DISPLAY THE FLAG!

OFFER A PRAYER FOR OUR COUNTRY!

We humbly ask You to bless our country. Give us and all who dwell here, understanding to work for its true welfare. Quicken our sense of responsibility as citizens that we may seek together to remove all evil and bigotry and labor for the victory off goodness. Teach us Your Law and show us how our nation and all nations may be united in the endeavor to fulfill Your will and establish Your kingdom. Amen.

 

FROM THE RABBI:

Shabbat comes 52 times a year and this week is no exception. Although we do not have worship at our Temple, you can still bring Shabbat into your Mikdash Maat, your home. Plan a delicious meal, complete with the Lighting of the Candles, the Recitation of Eshet Chayil, a Woman of Valor, the Blessing of the Children,  HaMotzi, Kiddush and Birkat HaMazon. Make Shabbat meaningful and enjoyable for your family. Celebrate!

Barbara and I wish you Shabbat Shalom.

"What's a Synagogue For?"

-Richard Hammerman

 

A synagogue is a beacon of Judaism in the community.

A synagogue is a reflection of your values, hopes, aspirations.

A synagogue is a place for Jews to gather for prayer,

mutual support, celebration and comfort.

A synagogue is a place to enrich your life, challenge

your assumptions and "discomfort the comfortable."

A synagogue is a place for Jews "to Kiddush,"

      to sanctify and socialize together.

A synagogue is a place to learn, grow and reach higher

- for each generation.

A synagogue is a place to remember family, friends,

mentors and moments.

A synagogue is a vehicle to highten your sensitivities,

encourage your commitments and expand your horizons.

A synagogue is a place to create memories

and remember creation.

A synagogue is a place to face the One

who is called HaMakom, "The Place."

 

I hope you will uphold these ideals and add your own thoughts

as to what a Synagogue, namely Temple Shalom, means to you.

I would enjoy hearing your responses.

 

Rabbi Marc S. Jagolinzer
