Shabbat Mesage: Committing an unintentional sin

Good Afternoon,   This week we start reading the book of Leviticus.  This book outlines the many intricacies involving the procedures a Priest would conduct including sacrifices.  In this Torah portion, Moses also teaches the people the laws of which sacrifices to give and when.  One of the situations discussed is when a person commits an unintentional sin.     According to Hasidic thought and various psychological approaches as well, when we do something inadvertently, it is not a mere accident but it is our motives coming out from deep in our soul or subconscious.  These actions reveal what is truly going on deep in us.  Thus, one should not only ask forgiveness and make amends for the actual act that was committed, but for[...]

Shabbat Message from Rabbi Metz – D’var Torah: A Woman’s Gifts

Good Morning, This week I would like to share with you a thought-provoking interpretation of this week's Torah portion.  This was written by one of my teachers, Rabbi Joel Levy, of the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem. We will discuss this further Shabbat morning. Please share your thoughts with me at Rabbi.SaraMetz@gmail.com. D'var Torah: A Woman's Gifts Rabbi Joel Levy, Rosh Yeshiva, Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem  This double parasha, which describes the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness, mentions various contributions made specifically by the Israelite women. The first is found in Exodus 35:25-26: "...every woman wise of mind with their hands they spun ... the goats'-hair." By way of the ancient and time-consuming activity of hand-spinning - twisting fibers together to[...]

DAY 1461: It’s My Fault There’s No Fireworks Tonight

Dear Hevreh, It's my fault that fireworks are not happening tonight. One of the organizers asked me to pray that rain would not fall tonight, and though I did offer a prayer, it didn't help; the weather forecast is too inclement for the fireworks to happen tonight. They've been rescheduled for tomorrow and I hope the organizer doesn't ask me to offer a prayer for those fireworks - I don't want it to backfire. Before you write me a note saying "to not take your prayers so seriously" or that "you really didn't cause this," just know that I wrote the previous paragraph with the proverbial tongue in my cheek. I recognize that prayer doesn't necessarily work in that way we most[...]

DAY 1406: Dialoguing with Torah

Reflection on this Shabbat Morning's Torah Talk with a special kiddush sponsored by Harriet Pearlman who is moving to Minnesota to be closer to family.. תלמוד תורה כנגד כולם Talmud Torah k'neged kulam The Study of Torah is greater than everything else (Mishnah Peah 1:1) Dear Hevreh, We yearn for our actions to be purposeful, efficient, and relevant, to take advantage of every second we have in this world because there are too few to spare. It may be ironic then that the study of ancient Jewish texts is perhaps, as the quote above teaches us, the most important thing we can do as Jews, yet on the surface, studying Jewish texts is an inefficient, laborious, task to delve into topics[...]
