Yitzhak Rabin z”l November 4, 1995

Fifteen years. Is it possible that fifteen years have passed since Yizthak Rabin was killed at a Tel Aviv peace rally? Fifteen years since that Saturday night when the prince of peace was killed with the words to Shir L’Shalom, The Song for Peace, bloodied and pierced with a bullet hole still in his pocket.

Why Did God Put the Tags in Back?

God has been a frequent topic of conversation in our house. It started a few weeks ago when my almost five year old daughter pointed to my head and said, “What’s that?” “That’s my hair.” I replied. “No that, next to your head.” I explained that it was the place where your hair comes out Continue Reading »

Freeing the Captive

Like many of you, I have been captivated by the story of the 33 Chilean miners trapped underground since August 5. I spoke about them on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (you can find it in the sermons section of this website) as an example of living as though your present reality is not the Continue Reading »

Angels in the Infield

The greatest choir directors in the world, during passionate choral conducting moments of liturgical masterpieces, experience an intense “feeling of oneness” with all of their choir members; their audience for the most part made up of perfect strangers and God in Heaven. We are blessed at Chizuk Amuno to have one of those rare choir Continue Reading »

If These Walls Could Sing

Friday Night October 29th the Chizuk Amuno Sanctuary’s walls will release its memories and sing in harmony melodies that have been sung by previous Hazzanim, choirs, grandparents, great-grandparents and even great-great-grandparents.

When God Calls You

God asks Abraham where he is? In Calling out to him, God wants to know, “Abraham – where are you?” Abraham responds quickly and firmly, “vayomer hineni” – and he said, “Here I am.” Initially it seems to be a simple answer to a simple question. God Asks: “Where are you?” and Abraham says, “Here Continue Reading »

Communities and Individuals

Community, community, community. That’s what we talk about these days. It’s right that we should talk about community as we prepare to gather in the largest numbers of the year. As we try to “craft” a tefillah experience that is meaningful for all of us in the Krieger Auditorium, I am wrestling with the two Continue Reading »

Weighing Your Words

We have become a culture of imposed sound bites and trivializing commercials. Word choices especially adjectives can be misleading and misrepresent the reality of the topic. When a friend or acquaintance loses a lot of weight we wonder to ourselves whether the dramatic loss was voluntary or due to has v’halilah health reasons. After a Continue Reading »
