  • Town Hall Meeting

    On Sunday, February 10th, we held a Town Hall Meeting. The first hour was devoted to discussion about different ways to sustain our congregation, including a possible voluntary commitment model (click here to download the PowerPoint presentation). The second hour focused on the proposed bylaws changes which we’ll vote on at the Annual Meeting on Monday, May 6th at 6:00 p.m. (click here to download the PowerPoint presentation). You can view both portions of the meeting below. (more…)

  • Drash on Parashat B’shalach

    “And the children of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt, and Moses took the bones of Joseph with him…” (Exodus 13:18-19)

    What were the weapons that the Israelites took with them? Rabbi Moshe Meiselman, nephew and student of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, teaches that the armament was comprised of the bones of Joseph. (more…)

  • Drash on Parashat Bo: Into the Darkness

    And the Eternal said to Moses, Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, darkness which may be felt. And Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days; they saw not one another, nor any rose from his place for three days. But Israelites had light in places where they lived (Exodus 10:21-23).

  • Drash on Parashat Va’eira

    But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that I may multiply My signs and marvels in the land of Egypt (Exodus 7:3).

    This is one of ten references in this portion to either God hardening Pharaoh’s heart or Pharaoh himself hardening his heart. The rabbis taught that God was destined to harden Pharaoh’s heart to punish him for the 400 years of cruel bondage he imposed on the Israelites. (more…)

  • Drash on Parashat Sh’mot

    Moses encounters God in a burning bush. God gives him the task to set the Israelites free. Moses is reluctant and asks God, “When I come to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your ancestors sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is His Name?’ what shall I say to them?” (Exodus 3:13). God answers Moses: Ehyeh asher ehyeh (“I am who I am” or “I will be who I will be”). (more…)

  • Drash on Parashat Vay’chi

    Jacob called his children, ‘Assemble yourselves and hear, O children of Jacob, and listen to Israel, your father’ (Genesis 49:2).

    It is interesting that the children of Jacob are asked to gather and listen. They come together in order to listen to Israel and not Jacob. Why are both names used for our patriarch in one sentence? (more…)

  • Drash on Parashat Vayeishev: The Value of a Coat

    Jacob sends Joseph to find his brothers in Shechem. A person, out of nowhere, discovers Joseph to-eh basadeh, “wandering in the field” (Gen. 37:15). What if we translate this differently? Joseph was “astray about the field”? Joseph misinterpreted what the field truly meant. Joseph recalled the argument between Cain and Abel (Gen. 4:8). What did they argue about? (more…)

  • Drash on Parashat Vayishlach

    Why does Jacob hold on so tenaciously to the angel (Genesis 32:27)? Where once he held his brother’s heel for a free ride from the womb to the world, now he grasps the angel and demands a blessing. One lesson we draw from this is not to rely on miracles. The Talmud tells us, “One should never place oneself in a dangerous situation, saying, ‘A miracle will come and save me’” (Shabbat 32a). (more…)
