"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
