Day 3 – Reflection Inspired by Fireworks

Dear Hevreh,

As I sat waiting for the fireworks at the Perth Amboy marina, I saw many kids running around, smiling, laughing, and falling.  I don’t know what it is, but there is something about fireworks that brings out the kid in me.  The sound, the sight, the spectacle is just so magical.  My mind is mesmerized, my attention is arrested.  It’s a moment that inspires.

This afternoon, I met with Larry Deutchman at Panera in Woodbridge.  Among the many things we talked about was the importance of having a vision for where we want our shul to go.   A vision is not just a plan for the future, it’s a code of belief that inspires us as we move forward.  A good vision captivates us, enlightens us, motivates us.  It brings out the kid in us.

Happy erev fourth of July,

Rabbi Ari Saks
