¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

In today’s knowledge based world we have a tendency to overanalyze every political statement, nuanced communique, and summit handshake. This past week’s meetings between world leaders typifies thet very idea. Yet at some point we trust Hashem controls the world and we are but observors. Yes we do our utmost to protect our interests and help society but after all said and done we emphasize emunas Hashem.

We also have a tendency to attempt to understand every mitzvah in the Torah whether it be logical or not. The laws of the red heifer is a prime example. Chazal explain that a CHOK carries within it no inherent reason and while one may attempt to explain it, ultimately our purpose is to serve Hashem with or without understanding the deeper meaning of the mitzvot. Too often if someone may not be able to understand the underlying logic of the commandments, he or she may tune out from total observance, To this the Torah cries foul and is determined to remind us of our eternal obligation. Yes, please try to understand the chochmas Hashem, then know when to say we obey no matter what.

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.
