We soon will gather together as a community to usher in the High Holy Days, to listen to the sound of the shofar, and celebrate the start of another year.

One of my favorite themes of the High Holidays is timing. By this I do not mean whether the holidays are early or late but rather the urgency to take care of things immediately.

As one who does not like to think of the High Holidays as early or late but rather right on time, even I have to admit this year that it is unusual to begin our High Holiday season in October. The calendar this year gives us an opportunity to spend more time in reflection and self-evaluation focusing on the important things in our lives.

Now that we are past Labor Day and into a new school year, it is time for us to prepare for our New Year that will be with us in a few weeks. For centuries, the Rabbis have encouraged us to prepare for the High Holidays for the 30 days prior to Rosh Hashanah.

I am sure most of us are familiar with the old saying, "You can't really understand another person's experience until you have walked a mile in their shoes."

I found this to be such a difficult week. When it began, I was feeling good because of our Shabbat and Shavuot programs and services from last weekend. But it was during the holiday that I first heard the shocking and tragic news from Orlando and when I began to read and watch the news and learn even more.

As I thought about Yom HaAtzmaut this week and what I wanted to share with you about the 68th Birthday of the State of Israel, I read what others have written recently. I came across the following essay written by David Harris, the Chief Executive Officer of the AJC and I decided that I wanted to share his words with all of you. There is a lot in this essay to think about and to discuss including the great sense of pride he has including Israel’s accomplishments in so many important areas. I share his pride and his passion and I wanted to share his words with you.

In honor of Mother’s Day tomorrow, I spent time this week exploring the relationships Biblical mothers have with their children. I reviewed many stories about these great women and reminded myself of many great qualities that these women shared including loyalty to their families, a strong desire to become a mother and a number of strong statements mothers made about their roll as the matriarch of the family. It was then that I discovered a fascinating reality.

As I spoke to people in the congregation prior to Pesach, one similar topic arose often; what would Seder be like this year without a specific loved one who passed away since last Pesach.
