DAY 1005: Tears of Joy

Dear Hevreh,

There was a moment during this past Saturday’s Cantor Showcase, there was a moment when I closed my eyes and the Cantor’s voice filled them with tears. It wasn’t just that she sang a beautiful piece, but that it was sung in our magnificent sanctuary. My tears reflected the sublime joy of the special kind of Judaism we experience in our shul.

So how do we create more moments like that? By coming together on a frequent basis to experience the joy of Judaism as a community. When we spend more time together we will inevitably think about, discuss, plan, and execute the kinds of programs that grow our shul. Programs like…
But in order to make more of these kinds of programs a reality, we need to invest the time together to simply be in community. It’s the time that can only be achieved by making regular shul attendance a part of your life. As I said both before and after the Cantor shared her beautiful music, we enjoy our time together. So let’s do it more often, and if we do, I know we will share more tears of joy.
Kol Tuv,
Rabbi Ari Saks
