Rabbi's Message - September 2021

Dear Friends, As we approach the High Holiday season we begin to celebrate our relationship with G-d. It provides a special opportunity for each of us to bond with our very essence, the part within us that forever remains a part of G-d.

Our sages teach us that these sacred days of the year offer each one of us, a special feeling of joy suffused in it. A joy that celebrates our connection with our Creator and expresses confidence that, as the doors of judgment close, our prayers will be accepted and we will be granted a year of goodness, life, health and happiness.

As your rabbi at Pembroke Pines Jewish Center, I am embracing the moment and the wonderful opportunity that has been presented to me in meeting our members and the new faces that will be joining us for this most important time of the year. Sylvia and I wish for you to be sealed in the Book of Life for a good and sweet new year! Shana Tovah u’Metukah!
