Shalom Aleichem Lekulam

Shalom Aleichem Lekulam I once saw a bumper sticker that read “If the only prayer you every say in your entire life is Thank you, it will be enough! Thank you!! To our Rov, Chazan and all the staff who have made Renee and me so very welcome. To all those in the kehillah who made our landing so soft and our transition home so smooth – Thank you!

I think it was Oscar Wilde that said “The smallest Act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention” My family and I experienced huge acts of kindness. And to the Ribbono Shel Olam who guided us home, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Our first Shabbat in the community brought a flood of marvelous memories. What a Shabbos to begin on! The Shul hosted the Zionist Federation who in turn hosted us to a delicious dinner.

There is a tangible pulse that beats in the heart of this kehillah kedusha. I love it! Everyone feels welcome – everyone feels at home. I seriously can’t wait to meet you all, to learn and to grow with you all.

Shabbat Shalom Umevurach!
Rabbi David Shaw
