Rabbi's Message

Parashat Devarim
Deuteronomy 1:1–3:22

Into and Through Tisha b'Av: Our Fragile Alchemy of "Why"
Rabbi David Markus

There’s gotta be a reason. What’s happening now must be a reaction to something that came before. Someone must be responsible: maybe me, maybe you, maybe all of us. Any God that is good and fair must have some purpose in all this – right?

We sense this yearning for “why” just under the surface. After all, there’s lots to explain, and mere natural explanations don’t always suffice. That’s why so many people, of all faiths, might seek and see divine purpose in most everything from covid to tornadoes.

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

Mitzvah of the Week

As New York State reopens, and more people are out and about, let us remember, to quote Dan Levy, that wearing a face mask is an act of kindness.

We wear masks to protect the vulnerable among us: those with underlying health conditions, those with compromised immune systems, and those who are 70 and older.  We also wear masks to protect those who seem less likely to become severely ill -- the younger patients who end up on ventilators due to a cytokine storm, or the children who develop organ failure due to the virus.

We wear masks as caring members of our community, and the global community at large.  Please do everything you can to contain this pandemic -- wear a mask.

If you want to read more of what Dan Levy had to say, go to: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/schitt-creek-dan-levy-urges-072225551.html.

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.
