Please join us for Shabbat worship and Torah study, 9:30 am.
Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel said that human beings come to God through both motivations: “A man totally unconcerned with his self is dead. But a man exclusively concerned with his self is a beast.” Human beings naturally engage in this world through both our reflective and transitive selves, from both our ego-driven as well as our selfless-inspired souls. Our challenge is to overcome ego-centrism and selfishness and to actualize the Awe of Heaven. “The greatest beauty,” wrote Rabbi Heschel, “grows at the greatest distance from the ego.”
