Virtual Opportunities From The Clergy

Rabbi Adam Raskin


Shabbat Sermon on June 6, 2020: "A Jewish Definition of Power"
One of the most celebrated contributions Jews have made to popular culture is the invention of the superhero.  Almost every major superhero character known and beloved to generations of American children-and many adults too-came to us courtesy of a Yiddisher Kopf.  Superman was invented by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster; Joe Simon and Jack Kirby came up with Captain America; Bob Kane and Bill Finger introduced us to Batman; Stan Lee, whose real name is Stanley Lieber, gave us the impressive line up that includes Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic 4, Ironman, the X-Men, Thor, and the Avengers.  But the very first Jewish-inspired superhero of all comes courtesy of the Haftarah this week.

Learn how to sound the Shofar in preparation for the High Holy Days. If you have one, bring your own shofar; if you don’t have one, Har Shalom’s RAC (Religious Activities Committee) will give you one (up to the first 20 attendees; one per family) so that you can learn and fulfill the mitzvah of listening to the sound of the Shofar in your own home. Open to all ages. 

Sing-a-Long with the Hazzanco-led by Rabbi Joshua Cahan
Tuesday, September 1 and 8, 8:00 PM
Prepare your soul (and your voice) for the High Holy Days by reviewing some of your favorite melodies for the days and learning some new ones. Open to all ages.

To participate in either class, please email Hazzan Ozur Bass.
