Have we really changed?

Dear  Friend

Thank you for a wonderful inspiring Yom Kippur together as always. It was most enjoyable and uplifting to observe this very important and meaningful day with this wonderful community. Thank you to all who contributed to the success of our services!

Sukkot is one of those holidays that have gotten the short end of the stick. People don't know much about it, although it is as Biblical as Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Why do we celebrate Sukkot immediately after the High Holidays?

The simple reason is because we have all made resolutions to become better people for the new year. But have we really changed? Whether we have promised to curb our temper, become more generous, go to Shul more often or quit a bad habit, it is much easier to say than to do. Often a sincere resolution is forgotten as quickly as it was made.

The reason for this is compartmentalization. Our personalities are divided. One part of us truly wants to improve and grow, while other parts of us are lazy and complacent. My mind tells me one thing but my heart feels otherwise. My soul has good intentions but my body comes in the way.

The solution: enter a Sukkah. When we enter a Sukkah, we enter with our entire being – our body and our soul, our heart and our mind. It is one of the only mitzvas that we do with our whole person. The Sukkah experience is one of wholesomeness. And only when we bring our whole self into a holy space, our resolve from Yom Kippur can be translated into reality.

Chabad Sukkah is open to all throughout the holiday. 

Good Shabbos and a happy Sukkot.

Shabbat Shalom,

A fascinating new six-session course from the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute

What is a soul? Where does it go after it departs this world? Do Jews believe in heaven and hell? Can souls communicate with us from the afterlife? How does reincarnation work?

Journey of the Soul explores the mysteries surrounding the spiritual dimension of our existence—our destiny that continues even after we’ve shed our earth-bound body suit.

We examine the transition of the soul into the hereafter, the kinds of legacies that are valued even after we’ve forsaken this earthly existence, and the accompanying emotional journey and rituals that help the soul and those closest to it prepare for its new reality.

Parshat Ha'Azinu

The greater part of the Torah reading of Haazinu (“Listen In”) consists of a 70-line “song” delivered by Moses to the people of Israel on the last day of his earthly life.

Calling heaven and earth as witnesses, Moses exhorts the people, “Remember the days of old / Consider the years of many generations / Ask your father, and he will recount it to you / Your elders, and they will tell you” how G‑d “found them in a desert land,” made them a people, chose them as His own, and bequeathed them a bountiful land. The song also warns against the pitfalls of plenty—“Yeshurun grew fat and kicked / You have grown fat, thick and rotund / He forsook G‑d who made him / And spurned the Rock of his salvation”—and the terrible calamities that would result, which Moses describes as G‑d “hiding His face.” Yet in the end, he promises, G‑d will avenge the blood of His servants, and be reconciled with His people and land.

The Parshah concludes with G‑d’s instruction to Moses to ascend the summit of Mount Nebo, from which he will behold the Promised Land before dying on the mountain. “For you shall see the land opposite you; but you shall not go there, into the land which I give to the children of Israel.”

Sukkot Reading
My Homeless Experience
As I sit back in my chair behind my large oak desk, waiting for Windows to load, I wonder when I had become so conceited. Where had this feeling of superiority come from? What is it that makes me believe, for even a fleeting moment, that I am better than those two men?
