From Rabbi Peter Stein
Living as Pursuers of Peace
There is a common question that is asked at this season: “How was your summer?”  Rabbi Stein In Jewish circles, and in rabbinic circles in particular, this, I think, can become a profound question.    It’s not just a way of inquiring about vacations and time by the lake, but in my mind is a way of asking about the events and emotions that become the foundation for the High Holy Days.

It’s like the question asked by a Christian colleague and friend, who never will ask the straightforward question, “How are you?”   Rather, she will ask “How’s your soul?”

So, here we are, assembled to welcome the new year with the magnificence of our Rosh Hashana service. There’s always excitement and sacred power in these assemblies. And, if we think of the long arc of our TBK history, these Rosh Hashana gatherings have happened during all sorts of momentous times.    We came together during the Civil War and throughout the Civil Rights movement, in the aftermath of the earth changing declaration of Israel’s independence and after we departed this earth and landed on the moon.  We’ve been together in the depths of war and depression and at the heights of peace and prosperity, for 170 years. Full Sermon

Rabbi Stein
