Tuesday, July 20, 2021–Clergy Check-In
After last week’s Tisha B’Av (which commemorated the destruction of both the first and second temples in Jerusalem denoting a major day of communal mourning), we can be “lighter” in joining in celebrating Tu B’Av: a minor Jewish holiday of love which begins this Friday at sundown … and embarking on the Seven Haftorahs of Consolation leading up to Rosh Hashanah, opening with a famous passage of Isaiah: ‘Comfort ye my people’ (well known even to secular people from Handel’s Messiah)

Cantor Schloss, along with the rest of the staff, will miss Rabbi Hirsch, this being her last Shabbat with us. Cantor wants us to celebrate Rabbi and say Thank You! She will be moving on to something new, beginning a new chapter, and we are very happy for her-wishing her and Carole well. In their honor, Cantor is singing “T’filat HaDerech” by Debbie Friedman, a prayer for a new journey for them.
