Rabbi Wing

Dear Friends

From Rabbi Binah Wing

Chaverim,  

First and fore-most, thank you to everyone who was able to be a part of the celebration last month as our daughter, Lilly, became a bat mitzvah. Part of what made it so special was that we were surrounded by so many of you, our community. It was a very special day for us, our whole family, and especially for Lilly. Thank you again.
 
Now we turn our attention to the High Holy Days which are right around the corner. Preparing ourselves – heart, mind, and souls – for these days is often a challenge, especially when it comes amidst the other changes at this time of year. Our family understands this deeply this year! The lull of summer is giving way to the rush of the fall. School is well underway for our children and grandchildren. Vacations have been taken and we are back at work. We might even say, “It’s just not possible to get ready in advance.” Deep down we know, though, that we have to find a way because these sacred days come only once a year and we don’t want to let those moments for reflection and repentance pass us by.
