the President's Corner

As our guests shouted mazel tov (good luck) at our daughter’s wedding last month, I began to think of how much our English language has been influenced by the use of Yiddish (literally “Jewish”) words and expressions. Yiddish is historically the language of Ashkenazi Jews with its origins in central Europe in the 9thcentury. It is based on Hebrew and Aramaic languages with strong German and Slavic influences.

the Rabbi's Corner

With each holiday on our calendar comes a certain amount of preparation. Sometimes we prepare ourselves by prepping special foods or meals, like Hamantaschen on Purim, latkes on Hanukkah, or brisket for any number of holidays. Other times we go through spiritual preparation, like in the days and weeks leading up to Yom Kippur. During this time we reflect our thoughts and actions throughout the year that was, and we plan for ways to improve the next year. Both methods of preparation are invaluable to our celebration of the holiday.
