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.

As we prepare for our Seders next week, I wanted to share some material with you. These are all short essays from our new prayer book, Siddur Lev Shalem, related to the festival.

I think that I have told you in the past that every year, as I prepare for Passover, I give out parts in advance to everyone who will be at our Seder. These personal contributions add so much to the discussion and activities.

Tomorrow morning, we will announce the new Hebrew Month of Nisan that begins next Shabbat. Since Passover begins on the 15th day of this new month, it means that the first Seder is exactly three weeks from tonight.

Our extended TJC family has lost two special people this week - two gentle giants who passed away just a few days a part.

When I asked people in this community to name what they appreciate most about TJC I heard the music. The relationships. The people. The history. The intellectualism. The learning. The community. The showing up for each other in time of joy and need.

As we prepare for Shabbat this week and reflect back on the events of this past week, there is so much for us to think about and so many feelings running through out hearts. First and foremost, we send our thoughts and prayers to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Brussels.
