Unexpected Cravings (Yom Kippur 5777, Yizkor)

Maurice A. Salth  |  October 12, 2016

We recognize, while our loved ones are no longer able to sit beside us, they now reside within us and others that they loved and we still love. We see them in our mind’s eye, we hear their voices, we dream of them, tell stories about them to others. We name our children with their names and lovingly look at their photographs and, if we are lucky, witness their adventures in home movies and videos. And we try to do what Jewish tradition teaches us to do, to remember them and to find ways to take their best qualities with us, and make them part of our character and our lives.

Facing Fear: Walking the Very Narrow Bridge (Yom Kippur 5777)

Maurice A. Salth  |  October 12, 2016

Here we have so much to offer each other. We have members who've had to face the worst of the worst; a cancer diagnosis, a child with crippling anxiety, a spouse with Alzheimer’s, you name it. And these members have come to us and said: “If you hear of anyone in our community facing something like I did, please have them call, please connect them with me, I want to help.”

Right in the middle of Manhattan, our synagogue is a modern day shtetl – a haven where people can reach out to one other along the path. If you would like to offer your strength to someone or if you need help right now yourself with something large or small, please let us clergy know. We can manage our fears together.
