The events in the Torah reading for this week are encapsulated by two significant deaths. Sarah dies at the age of 127 at the beginning to this week’s recitation of the text, and Abraham passes away at the age of 175 at the end. In between these two events we learn that Abraham negotiates with the local king for a final resting spot for his wife and settles on a cave at Machpelah, otherwise known as Hebron today. He mourns her loss, and his life continues. First he finds a suitable wife for his son, Isaac. Rebekah at the well becomes his life partner. Then Abraham marries a woman named Keturah, and through her, six more sons are delivered into the world. Life goes on, and throughout it all we could say that our ancestors were teaching us how dying can be holy. My remarks for this week, however, focus on a different process of dying that is helping us to recapture the holiness that is expressed in another part of the Bible, the section related to the wearing of tzitzit and tying a thread of blue to them.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Temple member Deanna Gerren, sister of Mardee Goldberg. Graveside service will take place at Son’s of Abraham Cemetery on Cole Street Beverly, Sunday October 31, at 9:45 AM. The family will receive condolences at the Temple B’nai Abraham library Sunday and Monday evening from 6:00 PM- 7:00 PM followed by a Maariv service. The congregation offers its condolences to Mardee Goldberg and her children Jay and Mindy Goldberg and brother David Gerren. May God comfort the family in their grief among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
Addressed to Ben Schutzman, on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah In preparing my remarks for you on this day, Ben, I came across this quote that caught my attention. Abraham Maslow, a well-known scientist who is most remembered for his experiments in the field of human developmental behavior, is recorded as saying: “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be.” Ben, what is it that you most want to be and do as you stand before this congregation on the day that you become an adult in the Jewish community?

The temple recently received the note below… I just wanted to send a big thank you to your temple and especially Deb Vozzella. My family and I are active members of Temple Ner Tamid in Peabody. We had heard about your Jam Sessions on Sunday nights. My 15 year old son is a musician who has been looking for an “jewish connection” outlet for his playing. He participated in a 5 week overnight camp music program at Brandeis University but has not been able to find anything local during the school year. So we went Sunday night to check it out and I haven’t seen my son this happy since the summer. I had no idea what to expect. The evening started with an unbelievably warm welcome that we received from Deb Vozzella. Deb made me feel like she was a long lost friend and that the temple was my home. Within 2 minutes I was extremely comfortable. The kids at the Jam Space are incredible. I have never seen such a welcoming group of kids. It was like my son had been playing with them for months. We can not wait for next Sunday night. So thank you TBA for opening up your building and … Continue reading
