A message from Rabbi Abram Goodstein

Hello, members and friends of Congregation Beth Sholom,

As we enter the month of Elul, a month of deep introspection, we continue to embrace, understand, and struggle with the new normal the pandemic has delivered to us. While Elul is a heavy month during normal years, this year it holds special significance. Elul asks us to begin the process of reflection and self-improvement in time for Yom Kippur, our Day of Atonement.

 

This year we are asked to understand ourselves better while we are grappling to understand a world with COVID-19. It is an important time to recognize that we all are struggling with COVID-19 and some of us may not even realize it.  During the month of Elul whether you are seeing the best or the worst in yourself, I hope that COVID-19 is part of the what you wrestle with as you contemplate on yourself. Furthermore, as you reflect on the change you see in yourself, I encourage you to reflect on the change you see in others. We can all use support, especially during a season when our congregation traditionally comes together. Thank you and know that our congregation is here for you.

 

If you are in need of extra support please reach out to me at ravavram907@gmail.com or Elizabeth Ellis-Steinzeig at sille@gci.net who chairs our Gimlut Chasadim committee. Also, there is a lot of information about this year’s High Holy Days, so I encourage you to pay extra attention to what we are offering and how we are offering it this year. Shanah Tovah and Yom Tov.

 

A Yizkor announcement. This year we will be resetting the Yitzkor list. It will include all the names of people on our memorial boards, the names of people on our Yartzeit list in Shulcloud, and any person who has passed away in the past year. If you feel like you have a loved one who is not on any of these lists, then I encourage you to contact Eve Heavner at evecbs@aol.com and she will add your name to the list. Or you can create a new entry in your shucloud account under the Yartzeit tile at this link https://www.frozenchosen.org/member/yahrzeits Thank you.
