¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

The swift collapse of the American sponsored government in Afghanistan is a stark reminder of the limits of American military and diplomatic capabilities. More importantly it is also a signal to all Israelis that they must be vigilant in defense of their country. It did not go unnoticed how the supporters of the PA and Hamas celebrated the defeat of the Afghan Army and the humiliating withdrawal of American personnel.  

This weeks Parsha opens with the warning of how soldiers are to behave in the battlefield as they pursue the enemy. The Torah recognizes the necessity of war both offensive and defensive. It is the soldier who must carry that burden. If their morale is broken and they do not abide by a military code of ethics, then all will be lost. We just witnessed that very point this week. We pray that our American soldiers recently sent to Kabul will prevail in their mission and at the same time daven for the Chayalei Tzvah Haganah L’Yisroel. 
Good Shabbos
Rabbi A. M. Abramson

To all those who are not well as well as those worldwide with this virus. We mention their names at each Torah reading and think about them in our private tefillos. Let Hashem hear our tefillos on their behalves, and all have a speedy recovery. If there is a choleh that needs a misheberach, please email their name to anshemotele@sbcglobal.net .
Since we are not currently making the Mishebarach at Torah readings, in your private shmone esrai, you can include in the “Refaeinu” paragraph a special tefilla for the cholim that you have in mind.

HIGH HOLIDAYS: Please get your membership forms and payments in ASAP to reserve your PRIORITY SEATING in either of our services. The forms will be linked HERE. You can pay with the link at the top of this bulletin or by check, cash or money order sent to the shul.
Slichos begins Motzai Shabbos Aug 28 at midnight. Rosh Hashanah begins Monday night Sept 6. We will have our Hashkama Minyan downstairs both days at 7AM, and our main Minyan upstairs in the Main Sanctuary at 8AM
