A message from Rabbi Abram Goodstein

Dear members and friends of Congregation Beth Sholom,

We now enter the Jewish month of Sivan. Our Torah teaches us that on the first day of Sivan was the first day that the Israelites encamped in the Sinai. This was a period of great transition for the Israelites. They had just celebrated escaping the Egyptians and were now about to receive the 10 commandments. It was most likely a quiet day between days of greatness. I like to imagine that the Israelites spent this day in reflection. Processing their escape from Egypt and discovering what it means to be their own society.

 

During this month of Sivan, as our favorite hiking and biking trails begin to thaw. And the buds on trees and plants begin to turn to leaves and flowers. I hope you find time to process our past year as well. And I hope you find time to discover what means to enter into a post-Covid world. I believe when our country can finally lift its Covid restrictions, that our world won’t simply revert back to the way it was. I believe that we are all going to need to embrace a new normal that Covid has left behind.

 

Just as the Israelites first day in the Sinai was the twilight of great things to come. So too, do I believe that these spring days are a twilight of a post-Covid world. I also believe that those who have an opportunity to reflect on it will be more resilient and flexible as we discover what this new normal looks like. Whether you are hiking, biking, or boating, I can’t think of a better time to contemplate the future while taking in Alaska’s majesty.

 

 

B’Sholom,

 

Rabbi Abram Goodstein
