¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

This past week’s attack on a shul in Texas is an attack on us all. The Islamist terrorist does not distinguish between a reform, conservative or orthodox institution. In fact there as one attack several years ago on a JCC in California. We therefore stand together as one to combat hate and violence against Jews anywhere.

I found it ironic and disturbing that the attack probably coincided with our reading of the portion of Amalek, as if we need to be reminded. Zachor al tishkach Remember and never forget.
Good Shabbos,
Rabbi A. M. Abramson

¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

In case we may have been in a cocoon and missed the news, last week marked the anniversary of the election  protest at the Capitol Rotunda. Whatever our personal political view of the candidates we all agree that January 7 was a dark day in our nation’s history. There is however a more disturbing trend. A recent poll showed many (not a majority) believe a different scenario where the Capitol riot was perpetrated not by Trump supporters but by the anti-Trumpers. Whether one considers what happened on January 7 an incursion, riot, insurrection or simply a crowd gone wild, it was no doubt a pro-Trump gathering. Let’s not be blind to the facts. You need not be a democrat to know the facts.
The next to last plague was darkness. The Netziv explains that  since the Egyptians were blind to the sufferings of the Bnei Yisroel they themselves were punished with darkness as a prelude to the tenth and final plague.
We read last week about some horrible abuses which took place by a famed children’s author in Bnei Brak. Some accepted the truths and are attempting to right the wrongs. Others (also a minority) cover their eyes and cast aspersions against the accusers. Our challenge is to never look away from human suffering and to see the truth as best as we can. This will help us first and foremost to deal with the heavy issues sanely with maturity and forthrightness. Our faith in Hashem together with  sympathetic and empathetic dispositions should guide us as we seek true righteousness.

Good Shabbos,
Rabbi A. M. Abramson

¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

It defies logic that a leader would prefer devastation over greatness, defeat over prosperity. Yet that is what Pharaoh chose when defying the obvious. Rather than allowing the Jewish nation (which ironically had been a major reason for Egyptian dominance as the world power0 the right to worship Hashem he doubled down on oppression. Instead of partnering with the righteous he allowed his evil ego to overcome and confuse what should have been in his and his countryman’s best interest.
Let’s hope that the world leaders today from China to Russia, Iran and North Korea learn these lessons.

The Torah is as relevant today as ever and we must re-read, study and of course pray to Hashem to fulfill all of its prophecies.

Rabbi A. M. Abramson

¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

When Yaakov blesses his children before his passing, he does so both collectively and individually. The point of course is to stress that Klal Yisroel receives its strength by utilizing their individual potentials as part of the society. The State of Israel is a collection of many different shades of Jews (and a significant Arab minority). Yet whether one is religious or secular the goal of a unified State is of utmost importance. Maintaining that balance has always been a challenge but for the sake of the Jewish people needs to be preserved. Yaakov led the way, let us learn by example.

¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

This Shabos is special! Shabbos, Rosh Chodesh and Chanukah. Additionally we begin reciting Tal Umatar on Saturday night at Maariv. With all the additions to the davening we by necessity become much more careful about our tefillah. We need to recite yaalah vayovoh, al hanisim, atah yatzartah (in musaf) and of course tal umatar at maariv. We also take out three sifrei Torah. This gives us the additional incentive to pay close attention to the davening, be more circumspect and have greater kavanah. Let us use this unique opportunity to pay homage to Hashem even as we celebrate the rare triple header as the momentous event it is.

Good Shabbos, Chodesh Tov and Happy Chanukah.
Rabbi A. M. Abramson

¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

I found it fascinating that in the year 2021 at the very border of Grodno (Belorussian) and Poland a possible international crisis may arise. There you may know there is a tense border dispute with Iraqi immigrants in the middle. The symbolism is obvious. None of the three protagonist cared very much for the plight of the Jews in the years 1938-1945. In fact not caring is an obvious understatement. Their joint hatred of the Jews is so palatable that right up to this present day they continue to blame the Jews for their woes.

This weeks Parsha relates the epic struggles of Jacob ans Esau. Our challenge is to do as Jacob did; develop good diplomacy, but be prepared for any situation. Thankfully today we have a strong State of Israel that is as assiduous at both.

Good Shabbos

¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

I recently attended a JUF seminar exploring the latest demographic study of Chicago metropolitan Jewry. What was more interesting than the usual and expected results were the comments from the non-orthodox clergy reacting to the downward trends of their membership numbers. During the q and a several of them expressed unease and dissatisfaction with the post covid tendency to zoom into shabbat and holiday services. They bemoaned the social isolation, the lack of communal prayer and the distancing of congregant and clergy. Interestingly the orthodox movement has for the most part reconvened not fully or without precaution but nevertheless at least in communal prayer. This has helped solidify the very nature of our ability to persevere and eventually grow. That may be one of the main reasons that the orthodox movement has been the only one of the major denominations to rise in number.

In this weeks Parsha we witness Yaakov’s prayer reaching the heavens but more importantly the prayers received and answered. It is the template of what davening is all about. We are allowed private time at shul (or at home) to commune with Hashem and allow the prayers to reach the highest peaks of heaven. When we stand before Hashem, we are to be cognizant of these sentiments and use those precious moments to concentrate with devotion (kavanah). Let us rededicate ourselves to prayer with kavanah and encourage our fellow Jews to do the same.

Good Shabbos

¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

Reports if accurate is that the United States State Department wishes to open an American consulate in Jerusalem. If true this would clearly violate the sovereignty of Israel and its right to its capital Jerusalem.
This weeks parsha highlights the central theme of sovereignty over the land by the Jewish People as we witness Avrohoms excruciatingly difficult negotiations for not only a burial plot for Sarah but also to maintain ownership over the land. We pray that these reports are not accurate and out Government will respect the integrity of Israel.
