Whether you ran in here today on little feet, or ambled, or strolled, or rolled in, you are welcome here.
Whether you lean to the right or to the left, or like it somewhere in the middle; whether you are a believer or a questioner, or a questioning believer, you are welcome to this makom shalom, this place of peace, joy, and hope, Congregation P’nai Tikvah…”

In Your Image
We are made in Your image with all the colors of the rainbow.
All our faces are reflected in You.
Help us to be mindful
That when we look into the eyes of another, when we speak with and pray for others,
We are connecting to You.
Each of us carries that Divine Spark,
That flash of light, reflecting and mirroring each other and You.
Bless us with unity
And a sense of belonging.
We are One.

I have been blessed with my first 0ne-on-one bat mitzvah student, a lovely 11 year-old girl. It has been a long time since I was 11, and I have no daughters so hanging out with an 11 year-old is a new experience for me. Clara and her parents are Argentinian and she spent 4 years in Hong Kong, and then Ohio, and now in our community, so her perspective is fresh, enriching and causes me to think.
Last week on Rosh haShanah, I commented on the idea “May we be inscribed for a good year.” I explored the idea that in the coming year there will be things over which we will have no control, and other things whose outcome we can affect through our actions.
Shanah Tovah – Here we are again…We are here to celebrate together the Jewish New Year. 5780. Woohoo! Happy Birthday us! We are looking pretty good! But that is not all we are here to do….
