Rabbi's Week In Review - 9/6/2022

As I write this, my laptop computer is limping toward the end of its useful life. For me, this has brought on a sense of dread — dread that I might lose something that I have saved on the computer (even if I have not looked at it in the last eight years or so), dread over having to familiarize myself with new technology, dread at losing this communication lifeline.

I am not one to decry our overreliance on our computers. I do realize, however, that it does not take much to move from just calmly taking them for granted to being in a state of total stress over not having use of them — i.e., my life is falling apart.

My sense is that it is as much a fear of not being able to stay connected, not being able to communicate. As we are in the month of Elul and in preparation for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, let us commit ourselves to finding ways to stay connected and to build a stronger, more connected community — not only for ourselves but also for others who need us.
