techerryhill @techerryhill www.templeemanuel.org August 2017 Av/Elul 5777 From the Rabbi’s Study by Jerome P. David, D. D. It is told of Rabbi Levi Yitschak of Berditchev that he once summoned all of the Jews of the community to assemble in the town square the next day, at noon, because he had an announcement of the greatest importance to make. He ordered that all the merchants were to close their shops, that all the mothers were to bring their infants, and that everyone, with no exceptions, was to be there to hear the announcement. The people wondered what the announcement could be. Was a pogrom imminent, or a new tax? Was the rabbi going to leave? Or perhaps he was seriously ill? Did he know the time when the Messiah would come, and was he going to reveal it? At noon, the entire community was present, with no exceptions, and everyone waited with baited breath to hear what the rabbi would announce. Precisely at twelve, the rabbi rose and said: “I, Levi Yitschak, son of Sarah, have gathered you here today in order to tell you …that there is a God in the world.” and closed their shops to hear? Had the rabbi convened them only to tell them something that everyone already assumed? But then, as they thought about it, they began to say to themselves: “Indeed, what could be more important than to know that there is a God in the world.” that there is a God in the world. During these High Holy Days, open up your hearts and your minds and let God in. Your clergy team, along with Murray Savar, look forward to seeing you and greeting you during richest happiness.
