Rabbi’s Corner

Hafoch ba v’hapech ba, d’chula vah.

Turn it [Torah] round and round as everything is in it (Pirkei Avot 5:24). As we seek to bring God’s presence and Torah in to our lives, we do so not by removing ourselves from the realm of the material, not by separating ourselves from the majority, but by sanctifying our lives in the midst of our material, heterogeneous, complicated world.

Beth Shalom serves as an entryway for those who seek a closer connection to our people and to God. It is a place of Torah, a place of Jewish living and a place of caring. I look forward to dancing in our entryway, relishing in our community and challenging ourselves to deepen our connection to Torah and inviting others to join us in this journey.
