Rabbi Josh Whinston

This past Sunday I stopped by Apples and Honey at the JCC and ran into a few of our members. I also ran into Rabbi Alter Goldstein of Chabad. After a few pleasantries, Rabbi Goldstein brought up the end of the sabbatical year with this Rosh Hashanah, the seven-year cycle of leaving fields fallow in the Land of Israel. We talked about the tradition, called Hakhel, of Jews gathering together at Sukkot to celebrate the completed sabbatical year. As we continue to figure out our individual comfort levels as covid circulates in our world, let us pray that this year will lead to more gathering, more celebrating, and more community. 

May this be a year of peace and growth for us all, a year filled with happiness and sweetness.
