Rabbi's Message



This being the final month of Congregation Beth Ahm, I want to leave our readers, congregants and non-congregants alike with a message from the Hassidic Anthology, words which my teachers taught me and I teach others to live by as well:

Rabbi Menachem Mendel, the Vitebsker said: “Rejoice that you have an opportunity to sing to God; rejoice that you are a Jew; rejoice that you are able to pray, to study and to perform God’s will; remember that the highest saint and the lowliest commoner are equal in the eyes of God; be contented with your achievements in affairs of the spirit, as well as your worldly status; do not doubt yourself and enjoy the Light of God.”

Let us also remember that there is no Hebrew word for good-bye; we greet with “Shalom” and we leave with “Shalom, l’hitraot,” peace and until we meet again.

At our final worship service on Shabbat morning June 23, I invite all my students over the past 19 years to join me for any or all of the prayers as we say L'hitraot. Notice, I never say "former students" because my students are always my students as well as my teachers; and as Jews, we don't say good-bye," we say: "L'hitraot –until we meet again!"

Shalom, l’hitraot, as Jody joins me with much gratitude and appreciation.

  - Rabbi Alan
