From The Rabbi's

Desk

The Days of Awe are upon us. These days that extend from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur are filled with mystery and majesty, awe and wonder. Year after year, they compassionately return to us, again and again - to inspire, to challenge, to renew us. These Days of Awe approach us as G-d approached Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

You may remember the scene - Adam and Eve dwell peacefully in the Garden - not a care, not a worry. Living in a paradise serene and beautiful, they are satisfied and fulfilled, naked and unashamed. Yet the idyllic paradise ends abruptly when Adam and Eve choose to eat of the forbidden fruit. At that fateful moment, conflict is born into the world. Fear is created. Now aware of their nakedness, Adam and Eve feel ashamed for the first time. Yet G-d is among them. G-d is so close to Adam and Eve that they literally hear G-d’s presence - “they heard the sound of G-d moving about in the garden at the breezy time of day.” Feeling naked and afraid, Adam and Eve attempt to hide from G-d’s presence. Then G-d calls out to Adam with that question of questions: “Where are you?”
