Vaetchanan(I Pleaded") opens as Moses describes his pleading with God to be allowed into the Land of Israel.  Moses warns the Israelites not to pursue idolatry and recounts the giving of the Ten Commandments.  The portion also contains the Shema, a declarationof faith and a central text in Jewish prayer.(1)

FROM THE DESK OF RABBI STEVEN ROSENBERG

6b0eb9a3970a2bf1e6398010b94b1fb4.jpgbench.jpg

As we transition from Tisha B’Av to the High Holy Days, we come across this week’s Torah reading, Vaetchanan. The difference could not be clearer: the Ninth of Av where Jews were the most apart and engaged in baseless hatred which ultimately led to the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE and Second Temple in 70 CE. However, in this week’s reading, we come across the most important words of our faith: Shema Yisrael, Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad: Listen Israel, Adonai is our God, Adonai is One.

In essence this means that God is One, not in separate parts, but completely whole. For us to emulate God’s Holiness, we as a community and people need to be whole as well. The idea of the Jewish people as One Family, has been the thread which has held the tapestry of Judaism together for thousands of years. 

Between now and The High Holidays, that is our goal and mission, how we as a loving Jewish community can be whole, how we can be Echad. 

As the song way back from the 1960’s goes:

“Come on, people now

Smile on your brother (and sister)

Everybody get together

Try to love one another right now”

Please join us Friday night, August 12th at 7:30pm for inspirational Shabbat services followed by an Oneg, sponsored by Rabbi Steven Rosenberg and Dr. Sarah Sela in honor of welcoming Cantor Ken Cohen and in memory of our Rabbi’s mother, Joyce Rosenberg. We thank Mitchel Karp for plating this wonderfully delicious array of artfully prepared food after services. 

Musical Shabbat!!

Dr. Sarah Sela joins me in welcoming Cantor Ken Cohen on the bima, along with pianist Joel Baker.

My Friday Night Topic will be:

The Shema. It is all about coming together as ONE. 

Our wine and cheese Shabbat Happy Hour begins on Friday night at 7:00pm. 

Nosh and Drash Torah Study begins at 10:00am this Saturday morning, August 13th followed by joyous Shabbat services. Join us as we study and discuss parashat Devarim. 

Our High Holiday planning is underway! If you would like to participate in either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur services, please get in contact with me. It would be wonderful to have more guest readings this year and other honors as well. 

It is indeed our community that sustains and nourishes us. Let us continue to be there for each other both in times of joy and sorrow. Now more than ever, as we have safely opened our Temple to in-person services and events, let’s make every effort to be present and engaged, for that is how we keep our congregation strong and vital.

We continue to wish Doug Refuah Shelaymah, may God bless him with strength and health, both of body and spirit. It is wonderful to see Doug back at Shabbat services!!

We are blessed with such a special community here at Temple Isaiah, may we continue to be the vital Center for Jewish Life throughout the Coachella Valley for many years to come. 

I am always available, if you would just would like to visit for a while, either in person or by phone, video chat or text/email. Please feel free to get in touch with me. 

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Steven Rosenberg
