From Reb Sally Shore Wittenberg
Dear Kerhonkson Synagogue Community and Friends,
Please join us in-person or on Zoom for our monthly Shabbat morning services on Saturday.
And, please join the larger community for our annual “Tobey Pomerantz Memorial all Your-Can-Eat Chicken BBQ” - see attached flyer.
On Shabbat, we will pick up at our Torah reading in the second reading of Deuteronomy - Devarim.
This book is largely Moshe’s farewell address to the people as they stand poised to enter the Land promised to their ancestors.
Moshe will not be leading them there…
Moshe tells the people of Israel he begged Gd to allow him to enter the Land of Israel and was rebuffed. Gd instead instructed Moshe to ascend a mountain and
gaze in all directions at the Land across the Jordan River.
Continuing the retelling of Books 2,3, and 4 of the Torah, Moshe describes the Exodus from Egypt, Revelation and receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai. Perhaps based on his own experience with this People, Moses predicts that they people will turn away from G‑d, worship idols, and be exiled from their land and scattered amongst the nations; and that from exile they will return to Gd and the Land.
Our Parshah also includes a slightly different version as a repetition of the 10 Commandments, the Shema and 2 of it’s blessings.
I am hoping to see you this week,
Spiritual Leader Kerhonkson Synagogue
“The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.”
