Rabbi's Week In Review - 11/8/2021

11/08/2021 04:12:16 PM


I am thinking about this coming Saturday’s 10th-anniversary celebration. I related to our wonderful president, Wynne Begun, that I am approaching this day feeling a bit sheepish and, at the same time, looking forward to a time to celebrate.

The sheepish part is that this is presented as a “me” thing — honoring my 10 years as Congregation Kol Ami’s rabbi. I do think this should be a “we” event and not a “me” event.

The celebration piece I think is great for our Kol Ami family. Regardless of the challenges we face in the world, we need to take time to celebrate what is good. There is much about our Kol Ami family that is good.

As to the “me” thing, I did finally concede that if you want to honor my service to this wonderful synagogue community, I’m OK with it once every 10 years. So I will look forward to Saturday night, and I will look forward to 2031 … and I will look forward to everything Kol Ami in between. I am grateful to be rabbi at Kol Ami.
