Rabbi's Week In Review - 5/3/2021

05/03/2021 03:03:50 PM


This coming Shabbat, we will celebrate as a community the bat mitzvah of Scarlett Nevins.  The Nevins have been a part of our Kol Ami family longer than I have. This is a community celebration as well as a time to celebrate Scarlett having reached this time in life. 

By becoming a bat mitzvah and taking on more responsibility as she becomes an adult in Klal Yisrael, in our Jewish community, she connects all of us more closely to G-d and to one another in our covenant with G-d. There is an understanding that it is so much the community’s observance that it would be incumbent upon the bat or bar mitzvah to throw a party for the community. (By the way, there is a way around it.)

With that understanding, I am looking forward to a big turnout (albeit virtually) to celebrate this special day in the life of Congregation Kol Ami, Scarlett and the Nevins family.
