Our Rabbis' Torah Talk: Acharei Mot - K'doshim

Posted Monday, April 27, 2020 at 12:00:00 am

This week we read another double portion in the Torah, Acharei Mot-K'doshim. Unlike last week’s portions, which were ostensibly about the same topic, these two cover a huge range of ideas, from how to celebrate Yom Kippur to some of the most important moral teachings of our faith, like honoring our parents, loving our neighbors as ourselves, and judging fairly. It’s some seriously meaty stuff...

Posted Monday, April 6, 2020 at 12:00:00 am

We (your rabbis) met in Jerusalem in the summer of 2001.  It was a wonderful time to be young, to be embarking on new careers, to be in love.  It was also a frightening time to live in Israel, right in the middle of the Palestinian uprising known as the second Intifada...
