A Note on Mitzvah Day 2014

from co-chairs
Liza Robbins-Theuman & Herb Skerker

TBK members gave back to the community at Mitzvah Day. We fed the hungry, clothed the cold, fed the families of the ill at Ronald McDonald House, remembered our heritage by beautifying the gravesites at Mt. Hope Cemetary, repaired our prayer books, cleaned and planted at both our TEMPRO houses and at TBK, visited our elderly and shut-ins at the Jewish Home and in the community and welcomed all new TBK members with Challah, wine and shabbat candles. A huge tub of handmade mittens, gloves, hats and scarves were knitted by congregants for School 52 students along with boxes of books and school supplies. Our blood drive was very successful with 24 pints.

Our temple makes us proud. We are truly a Kehillah Kedosha (a holy community.)

From Rabbi Kelly Levy

“Go forth from your land, your birthplace, your father’s house, to the land that I will show you” (Genesis 12:1). Those were the words God spoke to Abram, the faithful and brave father of theRabbi Levy Jewish people. Abram, a descendant of Noah, is chosen by God to leave his homeland and cross deserts to a new, unknown land. He is promised a great name, a blessing, and descendants as numerous as the stars. And so, Abram packs up his entire life, leaves his family, and heads to a place that he does not know, a land without his family. Why does he do it? And, why is Abram picked by God to establish a new land and a new people?
The Torah is unclear why God chooses Abram. Unlike Noah, who is a tzaddik, a righteous person who walks with God, Abram is just an everyday Joe. True, he is a distant descendant of Shem, Noah’s son, but nothing in the text indicates that he too, was righteous. Is it because Abram actually responds to God’s command to pick up and move? Again, it is unclear. But, we can guess from Abram’s response that he truly believed in God and had faith that he would be blessed and his descendants would become as numerous as the sands in the sea and the stars in the sky.
It is difficult to find people today with as much blind faith as Abram had so long ago. Yes, we often say that we trust in God and know that “things will turn out right in the end.” But, do we have faith in God? How much faith do you have? Could you do what Abram did and just follow God’s commands? As we read from Parashat Lech L’cha this Shabbat, I encourage you to think about God in your life. We look forward to seeing you this Shabbat!

Rabbi Levy
