When I studied Jewish philosophy in rabbinical school, one of the more popular phrases to come up in our discussions on the meaning of the rituals was a phrase introduced by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, who claimed that the role of religion in our lives is to awaken us to the world in which we live. He said, “Among the many things that religious tradition holds in store for us is a legacy of wonder. The surest way to suppress our ability to understand the meaning of God and the importance of worship is to take things for granted. Indifference to the sublime wonder of living is the root of sin.” In other words, we must live out each day in “radical amazement.” What prevents us from doing so is our attitude of speculation and spiritual boredom.

Dear Fellow Congregants: By now you may have seen or heard that we have been busily interviewing candidates for our new spiritual leader. After reviewing resumes and screening potential candidates, the recruiting committee has begun the process of inviting candidates for interviews with additional members of the congregation. Our plan was to have members interview candidates that made it past the initial screening and then invite back those candidates that looked like the best fit for our congregation to spend Shabbat with us.

Thanks to the many years of diligent work maintaining our information by Paul W., Jack & Elaine I. and others, and also their recent patience while being asked to recall many details of long-ago, we have now updated the web site Yahrzeit list to include details showing who is a veteran, and who is interred in the Sons of Abraham Cemetery. It’s been interesting to learn some more details about our community’s history. We have had some special people in our past. Hopefully, we will find more ways to share what we know about them. www.tbabeverly.org/yahrzeits
