Rabbi's Message

Parashat Eikev
Deuteronomy 7:12 - 11:25

In a year where the observance of Tisha B’Av seemed more central than ever, we had a powerful gathering organized by Stella Morrison and Madeline Ritter in partnership with Bend the Arc. Hearing so many voices in English and in Hebrew was powerful. Eicha (Lamentations), which is read on Tisha B’Av, ends on a note of hope and possibility. Eicha also ends with the implication that the future is up to us. “Turn us Adonai, toward you, and we will turn. Make our days new again, like the dawn.”

Always in our Hearts

Tehillah member Illana Abramson dedicated her life’s work to improving the lives of those with disabilities, from infants to young adults. She had a unique gift of finding the spark within each soul and was passionate about her work.

To honor and celebrate her life the family is requesting donations to Beit Issie Shapiro, an organization in Israel dedicated to promoting the quality of life for people with disabilities both in Israel and internationally. The organization works with a wide global professional network, including the United Nations, to expand services available to those with disabilities and their families.

Donations can be made through the Beit Issie Shapiro website
https://en.beitissie.org.il/donate/

Tehillah Time

Tehillah Time is a program for children of our members, their friends and the community at large, regardless of religious affiliation.

So far they have enjoyed activities such as creative writing, art, and trivia and learned about the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam, Tzedakah, and Areyvut, as well as some Ladino and Yiddish history, 

  • WHEN: Friday afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00
  • WHERE: ZOOM - Registration required: hmchugh21@riverdale.edu
  • LEAD BY Tehillah members and graduates of our Hebrew School
  • Although there is no cost, donations are welcome to cover the cost of supplies. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Mitzvah of the Week

Throughout the Torah, we are counted in different ways and for different reasons. Here in the United States, the census affects us every day by determining how much federal funding goes to our communities every year for the next decade.

On Monday, the Trump administration announced that the census will end four weeks earlier than planned, on September 31. So far, 63% of American households have responded online, by mail, or by phone. At the same time that the deadline was moved up, enumerators have yet to be sent out to most New York City neighborhoods.

In this momentous year, we must literally stand up and be counted. If you have not yet filled out your census form, do so now. Go to https://2020census.gov/ and click on RESPOND.

The Canavan Foundation reminds us that even during a time of shelter-in-place and social distancing, timely and complete screening for Jewish genetic diseases is vitally important for anyone of Jewish heritage planning to start or add to a family. Ideally, you should be screened prior to pregnancy. You can call your doctor to discuss screening, or go to JScreen to learn about at-home access to their screening service. Click HERE for a digital brochure from the Jewish Genetic Disease Consortium, or you can visit their website for more information.
