“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. If you’re not subscribed to our email list, visit our Contact page to sign up to receive these writings by email.

Reclaiming Thanksgiving

We’ve all heard the phrase, “don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” The meaning is clear. If we hold out for perfection, not only will we miss a lot of good, but we will also sabotage the good and end up with neither the good nor the perfect. Our Sages put it this way: “Tafasta merubah, lo tafasta—if you try to grab hold of too much, you will end up holding nothing.” There’s plenty of wisdom to be found there.

Oldest vs. Youngest – Parshat Vayeshev 5782

There’s a lot of research into what it means to be the oldest child (and, for that matter, what it means to be the youngest or in the middle). However, if you’re an oldest child, you don’t need the research to know that the struggles of the oldest child are very real, and we see them clearly in our Torah portion this week, Parshat Vayeshev.
