From Rabbi White's Study

 

 Come into your sanctuary. Shake off the cold. Be warmed by our pillar of fire.

This season we read the Torah’s description of the construction of our first sanctuary, the sacred space during our ancestors’ desert journey, a description that anticipates the special, elevated, sacred community that gathers in our own sanctuary each Shabbat and holy day. 

The Torah teaches: The cloud of the Eternal One was upon the Sanctuary by day, and a pillar of fire was on it by night. (Ex. 40:38)

From Rabbi Kress' Study

 

It’s What’s Inside That Counts 

The Talmud tells the story about the daughter of the Roman emperor and Rabbi Yehoshua ben Hananya. “What a shame for glorious wisdom such as yours to be contained in such an ugly vessel,” she tells him. Without missing a beat, the Rabbi asks, “Does your father keep his wine in simple clay vessels?” The emperor’s daughter thought for a moment, and said, “Of course! What else would he keep it in?” The beguiling Rabbi said, “You, who are so important, should put your wine in vessels of gold and silver. The emperor’s daughter relayed this to her father, who put every last drop of his vast wine cellar into beautiful gold and silver vessels. 

Any wine drinkers will know what happened next: it spoiled.

A New Chapter 

The Year was 2000. We were living at 53 Peachtree Lane, and it was the first year that our son, Jordan, was going to summer day camp. He would be turning three in September. We wanted him to go to camp at Temple Sinai, where he would be starting nursery school, but there was a problem - the camp was full. 

Luckily, we lived across the street from the President of Temple Sinai, Steve Goodman. Steve lived at 42 Peachtree Lane, which was the biggest and the nicest house on the block. He was able to pull some strings for us and get Jordan into the camp that summer. After that, we became members of Temple Sinai.

Looking Back at the Festival of Lights

Chanukah is always a very special time at Temple Sinai Nursery School. The children learn about the miracle through stories and songs and puppetry. They eat potato latkes and applesauce, generously donated by Friend of a Friend. Each class celebrates at a festive party, which is organized by the class parents. The Chanukiah lights are lit as we count together the eight days of Chanukah. The children in the 3’s and Pre-K classes make their own menorahs.

  From Our Religious School

 

Do Not Separate Yourself From the Community

The notion of Klal Israel, of caring for one another and belonging to a kehillah, surfaces clearly in the Purim story. Purim is the most festive holiday of the Jewish calendar. It marks the celebration of an ancient history – when Queen Esther, a Jewish woman, a stranger to court intrigues, with no political power and no experience, simply saw, understood, and took action. She found the courage to risk her life to save the Jewish people from an evil advisor who plotted to destroy the Jews of Shushan.

Teen Talk

 

In January, I had the good fortune and pleasure to take two of our teens to Washington D.C. to participate in the L’Taken Seminar. The L’Taken seminar is hosted by the URJ’s Religious Action Center. Every seminar addresses 10-12 different issue areas in a variety of interactive formats. These issues, ranging from Gun Violence Provention to Global Health, from Israel to environmental and economic justice, are selected based on both the current legislative agenda and issues of primary concern to the Reform Movement, such as Israel’s security and well-being.
