September 2017

techerryhill @techerryhill www.templeemanuel.org From the Rabbi’s Study by Jerome P. David, D. D. What if you got a call from God? What would you say? Well, here is what some kids actually said… Dear God, Thank you for the baby brother, but what I asked for was a puppy. I never asked for anything before. You can look it up. -Joyce Dear God, I wish you would not make it so easy for people to come apart. I had to have three stitches and a shot. -Janet Dear God, Is it true my father won’t get into Heaven if he uses his golf words in the house? -Anita Dear God, I like the story about Noah the best of all of them. You really made up some good ones. -Glenn Dear God, I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only four people in our family and I can never do it. -Nancy Dear God, My popop says you were around when he was a little boy. How far back do you go? --Dennis Dear God, In Bible times, did they really talk that fancy? -Jennifer Dear God, Please send Dennis Clark to a different summer camp this year. -Peter September 2017 Elul 5777/Tishrei 5778 Dear God, Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they each had their own rooms. It works out okay with me and my brother. -Larry Dear God, Is our rabbi a friend of yours or do you just know him through the business? Dear God, I am doing the best I can. Really. -Frank I share these spontaneous responses because, in essence, that is what Rosh Hashanah is all about. It’s a call from God. A wake-up call. It’s a second chance to “do it right,” to correct the mistakes of the past and to work on it. Let us Begin. Let us Begin, together. To Work on it. From our family to yours, wishing you a healthy, fulfilling, and good New Year.
