Rego Park, New York, weather forecast

From the Rabbi's Desk

This month of Tishrei when Adam, Abraham and Jacob were born, is not only one of Teshuva, Tefillah and Tzedakah but one for deep introspection. What have we achieved the past year and what do we plan to do the following year of 5776? We only plead for one more year because we know that our life on this earth is not in our hands but in the hands of the Almighty.

However knowing that the Almighty is watching over us gives us the strength and the will to face the coming year with courage and boldness. No matter what obstacles come our way, we know G-d will give us the fortitude to face them and overcome them. At the same time, even though this is the time when we attempt to cast away our sins, we still don our very best clothes knowing full well that our prayers will be heard and the Almighty will give us another opportunity to do better.

Isn’t it wonderful to have such a loving father who not only guards us closely but is always helping us to be on the path of righteousness and truth? He is not a disciplinarian but a guide. Therefore when we pray this year, let us do it with a contrite heart, ever mindful that we should do our part in making this a better world and partnering the Almighty in his effort to make this a place where humanity is never replaced by cruelty, where having been given the option to choose life and blessings we do it with humility and thankfulness that the almighty will never forsake us. So we too should not forsake his lovingkindness. Let us do what we can for the betterment of our family, community and the world and make it a place of peace and happiness for all.

Daily Minyan Urgent Request

The morning and afternoon minyans are fragile and exist without a strong safety net of men to make a minyan if some of our regulars do not come.

If you are observing the yahrzeit of a loved one and it falls on a day when we do not have a minyan you would be upset and rightly so. We need you not only when you are observing yahrzeit, but a few days each month to insure that someone else will be able to say kaddish. A few days each month is not too much to ask.

By doing a mitzvah, you will be rewarded with a bigger mitzvah. Please contact the Rabbi or the Center office with your name and phone number; & when and how often & what time (morning/afternoon?) you can commit.
