Rabbi’s Message:

Last Shabbat, we read about Jacob and Esau and their rivalry from their birth onward. Toward the end of his life, when Isaac was blind, Isaac sent Esau out to hunt and prepare his favorite meal so that Isaac might convey his blessing upon Esau as the first born son. Rachel arranges a subterfuge for Jacob to receive the blessing instead. Did Isaac know that it was Jacob standing before him or did he think it was Esau? The text is a bit ambiguous but clearly indicates the Isaac was not certain. I chose to think that Isaac knew it was Jacob and realized in that moment that Jacob was a better candidate to carry forward the tradition of Abraham. As it turns out, Isaac was right. Children selectively adopt the values and attitudes that their parents try to convey to them. No child is ever an exact replica of its parents. But in each child, we can find the presence of our most important values if we look closely enough.

Learn to lead a service or chant a Haftorah!

Cantor Rosner’s  classes on zoom, free for any congregant (male or female):

  • Leading Weekday Evening Minyan (Maariv) – this is a simple and short service, and in a few weeks you can learn to lead your fellow congregants in prayer.
  • Haftorah: Pandemic Style – Learn  to chant an abbreviated Haftorah. Since we are not chanting the full haftorah during the Pandemic, you can learn to chant only several verses just like the Rabbi and Cantor are doing now. The shortened haftorah will make for a much easier and shorter learning period.

Contact Cantor Rosner as soon as possible to sign-up for these lessons! We would love to see you leading us.
