Elul: The King is in the Field

08/23/2022 12:30:58 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin


The image of the High Holidays is that G-d's Presence is more revealed than at any other time.  The theology: is G-d immanent (close) or transcendent (distant), can an omnipresent G-d be "more present" at one time or place than any other etc. doesn't really come up. ...Read more...

Parshat Ekev- Check It!

08/15/2022 03:47:44 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin

Parshat Ekev can be called "the Parsha of the Little Things".  The so-called minor Mitzvas that we tend to overlook or even ignore.  This D'var is dedicated to them... l'chaim to the small things- by which we live. 

I see it all the time. ...

The Three Weeks Begin...

07/18/2022 02:11:49 PM


Rabbi Rudin


The Jewish calendar is the photo album of our history, beliefs, doctrines and rituals.  Go through the Jewish year and you've pretty much got a picture of what we're all about.

Take the next three weeks for example.  These are where we store our most painful...Read more...

A Prayer for the 17th of Tammuz

07/11/2022 12:48:21 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin

For all that we are a people of memory, we don't venerate the past.  Instead we live our history through the here and now by remembering and focusing on how ancient lessons can help move us forward.  

This Sunday we commemorate the 17th of Tammuz which begins the "Between the Straits", the 3 Weeks leading up to the Black Fast Day, Tisha B'Av.  Why do we need to relive the dark days when our Temple was destroyed, we...Read more...

In Tribute: Temple HaTikvah - a Legacy of Welcome

06/27/2022 08:13:09 AM


Rabbi Rudin

This week's D'var is dedicated to Temple HaTikvah, the shul that made me, whose farewell gala last night both broke my heart and filled me with new hope and inspiration.  The holy sparks created by this amazing community will continue to inspire through the ongoing Jewish connection and community-building of the generations of beautiful Yidden who carry and live the truths of this holy Kehilla.  We welcome those families who...Read more...

The Mitzvah of Tzitzit: Fringe Benefits

06/22/2022 10:43:32 AM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin

Adonai said to Moses:  Speak to the Israelite people and tell them to make fringes on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, placing within the fringes a cord of royal blue.  When you see the fringes, you will remember all of HaShem's Mitzvot to do them and you will...Read more...

Parshat B'Ha'alotecha: Stop Kvetching.  No, really.

06/12/2022 04:19:50 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin

Negativity, especially negative language, has literally brought on disaster.  In this week's parsha, what begins as an unspecified complaint about the trek to the Promised Land- despite the clouds of glory that shelter the nation- devolves into a ruckus about the heavenly Manna which nourishes the people and tastes...Read more...

Climbing Sinai: Preparing for Shavuot

05/15/2022 05:49:33 PM


Rabbi Rudin


Coming in this year on June 4th, the two-day festival (one day in Israel) really wraps it up....or does it?

Shavuot, falling Seven Weeks to the day after Passover, connects Freedom to Freedom.

Freedom in the Passover sense means freedom from.  From what?  From...Read more...

Lag BaOmer- Up in Flames?

05/09/2022 03:26:43 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin

Since the Middle Ages, the Jewish School Year has concluded with a hike into the woods and bonfires into the night.  Lag BaOmer certainly has religious and mystical overtones: it commemorates how Jewish learning went on despite the Roman decree of death to anyone...Read more...

I had the great privilege of subbing in our religious school this Sunday and wanted to share how a discussion about Israel became a deeper discussion about family harmony and peace.

Passover- The Two Ways out of Slavery

04/13/2022 01:03:57 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin


Every year we are told to see ourselves as being freed from Egypt.  The Baal Shem Tov said that the minute we stop leaving Egypt, we are back there again- that is how pernicious and "sticky" slavery is.

The way out is, according to the Torah, to head out to the...Read more...

Shabbat HaChodesh: The Dark of the Moon

03/27/2022 03:49:47 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin

The very first Mitzvah given to the Jewish people might be surprising.   It wasn't to be fruitful and multiply -- that was the blessing given to Adam and Eve.  It wasn't to be holy or to be sure to do Mitzvot.  It was in fact to start our own...Read more...

03/15/2022 11:20:51 PM


Rabbi Moshe Rudin


When the Messiah comes, says the Talmud, and all the crooked paths are made straight and the worm of hate in the heart of humanity has been excised at last, all of the festivals will be abolished.  No more Passover or Yom Kippur.  No more Shavuot or Chanukah.  Why? ...Read more...
