Rabbi's Message

September 16, 2022
20 Elul 5782
PARASHAT KI TAVO
Deuteronomy 26:1 - 29:8

Dear Friends,

This week’s Torah portion is Ki Tavo -- “when you enter in” (Deuteronomy 26:1 - 29:8). As we prepare to enter the New Year, it is an appropriate name for this week’s parasha. As we prepare to enter the new year, what do we take with us and what do we leave behind?

This week’s Torah portion offers a clue. In the process of recapping our story, we encounter the paragraph below -- one that is found in every Haggadah.

“My father was a wandering Aramean. He went down to Egypt few in number and sojourned there; but there he became a great and very populous nation. The Egyptians dealt harshly with us and oppressed us; they imposed heavy labor upon us. We cried to Adonai, the God of our fathers, and the Adonai heard our plea and saw our plight, our misery, and our oppression. Adonai freed us from Egypt by a mighty hand, by an outstretched arm and awesome power, and by signs and wonders. And brought us to this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. And I now bring the first fruits of the soil which You, O Adonai, have given me.” Deuteronomy 26:5-10

Mitzvah of the Week

One of the strongest values that we have as Jews is our belief that a good dynamic education has the power to create strong caring communities. Sadly, after two years of Covid, when the quality of public education was less than stellar in every way, the New York public school system is faced with $469 million of cuts. Our system needs to recover and it needs the financial support to do so. This week we are not asking for your financial support, rather we are asking you to raise your voice on behalf of the next generation.

Per Fund Our Schools (UFT), an Aug. 1 fiscal year-end analysis by City Comptroller Brad Lander shows the city has the funds to fully reverse these cuts. The majority of the City Council, including our Councilmember, is now calling upon the mayor to reverse the cuts. We must add our voices.

Our schools are being hit especially hard, with both P.S. 24 and P.S. 81 losing nearly a million dollars each this year. To see how much money our schools are losing, and for more information, go to https://www.uft.org/get-involved/uft-campaigns/fund-our-schools.

Podcast

Why Is Caring the the Environment a Jewish Value?

In this episode of Tehillah Talks, we discuss:

  • Why the environment has lost attention
  • Learning about long-term impact
  • The way values about our land are embedded in our Jewish texts
  • How can we focus more on the communal and less on the individual
  • How can we create a sense of urgency with the environment
  • How can we make choices for the future where the environment fits in

Our teens make us proud -- share our pride!

Gardeners Needed


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Do you love to garden but don’t have a patch of earth to work with? Riverdale Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture is seeking volunteers who will help steward the land where our building sits. We’ve been removing invasives and putting in native plants to attract and support pollinators and improve the ecology of the land. 

This is an on-going project that can accommodate your schedule.

Covid Protocols

If you would like to join us in person at RYSEC, these are their current protocols that we must follow:

  • Vaccination records will be checked at the door
  • Wear a mask and respect social distance when indoors
  • Use hand sanitizer upon entering the building
  • Chairs will be set up 3 feet apart from each other. Family units may move their chairs closer together.
  • A family at a time when using the restroom
  • No food allowed indoors at this time; we will make Kiddush on the Patio
  • Children age 3 and up are permitted with masks
  • Maximum capacity – 30 people

Reservations are required. Please email Susan susansara1@aol.com or Kathy  kathyjny@gmail.com if you plan to attend. 
We look forward to seeing you whether in person or on-line.


Hearing Our Children

“Hearing Our Children” is Tehillah’s COVID Time Capsule Program, a grant-funded project to  help young students reflect on their experiences from the past year. Together we have  discussed new challenges and fears that have arisen in our lives and how we would like to  overcome them. We have considered the changes to each of our daily routines and schooling.  Each student has presented on an object that has represented their year, worked on an  individual pandemic documentation packet, and will soon put together a video reflection. We  are proud to share this project with you.
