Torah: Toldot – From Sacred Survivalism to Aspiration & Relationship

Please join us on Saturday morning at 9:30 am for Shabbat worship and Torah study.


Moving from a culture of Sacred Survivalism to one of Aspiration and Relationship: “The fact is, however, that the trauma of the Holocaust and anti-Semitism are no longer sufficient for creating personal identification with the story of the Jewish people. The real problem is how to build a sense of community out of shared meaning, not shared suffering. Stories of persecution will not inspire our grandchildren to be Jews. We have to offer them a dream, a vision that is morally and spiritually compelling.” ~ Rabbi David Hartman
