Shabbat Parashat Nitzavim September 23, 2022 – 28 Elul 5782 Shana Tova!

Dear Friends,

As we approach this final Shabbat of 5782 and prepare to welcome the new Jewish year of 5783, I would like to wish all of us a Shana Tova u’metukah – a sweet and a good year, filled with joy and blessings! And, I look forward to seeing many of you at services on the High Holy Days.

Our weekly Torah portion of Nitzavim mentions that we are all part of the Covenant – “The heads of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, every person of Israel, your young children, your women and your convert who is within your camp, both your woodcutters and your water drawers.”  (Deut. 29:9-10).

All of us count.  All of us are important.  All of us play a part of being a community inspired by Torah –  then and now.

So….to all of us, a Shana Tova u’metukah !

Shabbat Shalom!

Rabbi Gilah Dror
