“Against an age of alienation, isolation, and polarization, we are building a community of connection and encounter. Our goal is to fulfill the prophet Isaiah’s dream: Neveh Shalom will be a house for people of all backgrounds, orientations, genders, and viewpoints. We will then share our culture with the larger community and world.”

– RABBI DAVID KOSAK

WRITINGS FROM OUR CLERGY TEAM

Each week our clergy, Rabbi Kosak and Rabbi Posen, write sermons and divrei Torah for synagogue communications and services. Here you’ll find weekly writings and an archive of past writings.

The Beauty of Pride Is More Than Skin Deep

This past Wednesday, Israel360 partnered with our local Hillel to bring Ashager Araro to our community for an engaging and powerful presentation. Ashager is a second-generation Ethiopian-Israeli. Her talk covered many topics. A number of things stood out to me. One was her community’s deep-seated desire to return to Israel from Ethiopia, a country the Beta Yisrael (the name by which Ethiopian Jews self-identify) had lived in for 1500 years.

Now See, Hear – Parshat Vayera 5782

What I’ve learned about Zoom is I’m not able to be fully present unless I remove the distractions.  When we really see each other, not just in a tiny window at the top of the screen while we mindlessly scroll Facebook or answer email, that’s how we build relationships. May we continue walking into 5782 with presence and focus on the things that matter.
