From the Desk of Rabbi David Lyon
March 2, 2012

 

Every synagogue shares a similar vision founded on the familiar lesson that the world is sustained by three things: God, Torah and Israel (the people). Congregation Beth Israel fulfills the vision by engaging you in relevant, modern and joyful Jewish living. This week, I want to be sure that you are aware of all the ways you can fulfill your vision for Jewish life with us this month.

 

On God: Worship is spectacular at Beth Israel. Weekly worship in the sanctuary and chapel with beautiful music and liturgy speaks to us where we are. Come early to find a seat.

March 23rd, “Beatles Shabbat” with Cantor Daniel Mutlu is not to be missed. Do come early and get ready to be engaged and inspired by a brilliant interpretation of music and prayer set to familiar songs. Sanctuary 6:30pm.

 

On Torah: Education takes place in many ways for the entire family at Beth Israel. It isn’t just for children. It’s also for adults who are nourished by superior lectures and events.

March 13th, “92nd Street Y” live simulcast with Senator George Mitchell will begin promptly at 7:00pm in Wolff-Toomim Hall. Mitchell was a key player in resolving the Northern Ireland conflict and US Special Envoy for Middle East Peace. Senator Mitchell will be interviewed by Howard Gardner of Harvard University.

 

On Israel: Our people thrives in all places but none more critical today than the Land of Israel. Beth Israel’s trip to Israel on June 10-19, 2012 is open for registration. In addition, we continue to advocate for Israel through active dialogue and learning about Middle East issues.

March 20th, “Freedom of Religion and Women’s Rights in Israel” with Anat Hoffman, Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC), Jerusalem, Israel. Hoffman will speak on her tireless effort on behalf of women’s rights to pray at the Western Wall and for women’s equal pay for equal work in Israel. Not to be missed at 7:30pm in Ladin Dining Room.

 

God, Torah, Israel. These are the building blocks of Jewish life and living. Join us. It’s a gift you cannot deprive yourself and all are free to attend. I’ll see you there. May this Shabbat be filled with the blessing of rest and peace. May the week to come be all that you wish it to be.

From my family to yours, Shabbat Shalom.
