In anticipation of the Yizkor service for Shemini Atzeret, to be recited this coming Monday, October 5th, our dean, Rabbi Brad Artson, shares this message of connectedness and community.
“We are never ever alone. We are all in all and each in each.”
“What does it mean to locate nighttime as the beginning of our festivals and Shabbatot?” Listen in, and prepare for Yom Kippur, as our dean explores the deeper meaning of this anomalous Jewish tradition with the Temple Sinai community on the eve of Rosh Hashanah!
In his Rosh Hashanah sermon at Temple Sinai, Rabbi Artson calls our American Jewish Community to come together as a loving family, and repair a relationship that has been deeply wounded by the many painful words that have been spoken during the past months.
In this final “Lunch and Learn” teaching before Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Artson closely examines the 27th Psalm, a staple of the season’s liturgy, and guides us through an individual journey to face our own darkest foes with God as a companion and source of courage.
