Throughout Elul, the final month of the year, we blow the shofar each morning as a wake up call to our hearts and heads. Rabbi Kalender

David Starobind sounds the shofar for the final day of Elul.

Yontif
By Peter Maer

Mi Shebeirach avoteinu. M’kor habracha L’imoteinu: May the one who blessed our patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and our matriarchs, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah, bless and heal our world and all who are ill at this time of universal need.

May the One who we turn to for the blessings of life help and sustain us in this pandemic era. While we are socially distant, may we bolster the bonds that bring us closer to dear family and friends.

May the Holy Blessed One overflow with compassion for all who are ill and those who are alone, living in fear and worried about loved ones who are far away.

May we find the reassuring words and warm embraces to keep our children emotionally and physically healthy.

May Adonai help us to find strength in our faith, the words of Torah, in our High Holiday prayers, and in each other.

May we maintain stability by remembering the many blessings in our lives as we pray to be inscribed in the Book of Life.

May the Holy Blessed One bring strength to our Rabbis, who we turn to for guidance, and to doctors, nurses and all who are on the medical front lines.

May the One who watches over all of us help us to find leaders who are wise and compassionate as we confront this public health crisis.

Bless all who are desperately in need of healing and hope with r’fuah sh’leimah. Adonai, please hear our prayer. Amen

Our Yontif prayer takes on added meaning:
Barukh ata adonai elohenu melekh ha'olam, shehecheyanu, v'kiyimanu, v'higiyanu la'z'man ha'zeh.

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has kept us alive and sustained us and brought us to this yontif.

It's not too late to participate in this ongoing series! On Monday, August 10 at 3 p.m., Part 8 of the Jewish Women in Film series will be presented live by WLCJ.

See the Sisterhood e-newsletter from July 30 for the link to join this Zoom meeting. See https://www.wlcj.org/jewish-women-in-film/ to view videos of previous sessions.

During these very difficult times why not learn more about Jewish women in the movies with film expert Lois Silverman? "When we view a film, we enter a new, often unfamiliar world," said Silverman. "If the film is well constructed, we become engrossed in how the inhabitants of that world react with each other. But when we study a film, we learn more about that world; we see how the inhabitants of that world interacted and why they acted as they did. To study film is a means of viewing history and studying it," explained Silverman as she described her upcoming course. Silverman teaches a film course at SUNY/POLY in Utica/Rome, New York.

We had a wonderful day learning and then lunching in Baltimore on Sunday. At the Jewish Museum of Maryland, we had a tour of two temporary exhibits ("Stitching History from the Holocaust" and "Fashion Statement") and explored the permanent exhibit ("Voices of Lombard Street") and the beautiful gift shop on our own. Afterwards, we all had a delicious lunch at Ciao Bella in Little Italy.

Women's League for Conservative Judaism

Announcing the Torah Fund theme and pin for 5780/2019-2020! Chesed means “kindness” in Hebrew. The word can also be translated as “lovingkindness,” to convey the deep love that animates Jewish acts of kindness, done without thought of reward.

The Bible has numerous examples of chesed, such as Abraham and Sarah welcoming three strangers to their tent in the heat of the day; Abraham’s servant’s prayer for a wife for Isaac, answered by Rebecca who offers water to him and to his camels; and Ruth, who shows loyalty and kindness to Naomi, adopting her religion and peoplehood, after Naomi has experienced great loss. The rabbinic tradition enacted many laws to formalize our commitment to kindness, making chesed one of the three central pillars of Jewish life, as Shimon HaTzaddik taught: “The world rests on three things, on Torah, on service of God, and on deeds of kindness” (Pirkei Avot 1:2).

The 5780 (2019-2020) Torah Fund pin depicts a heart surrounded by three circles, one larger than the next. This symbolizes the heart of kindness, which Jews enact in ever-widening realms of generosity: from family, to community, to the larger world; from North America, to Israel, to the world; or from sisterhood, to region, to the larger world of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. And as it is said in Psalm 89, may we build a world of kindness.

Wondering about what this photo represents? This is the 5779 Torah Fund pin, which envelopes the Hebrew word for “future” (atid) with a stylized Magen David. It represents our wish for a distinctly Jewish future, for ourselves as individuals, for our families, and our communities.
