You are standing, Nitzavim, before  the Lord your God, begins this week's portion and then goes on to itemize all strata of society: your heads, elders, officers, every one of Israel. All ages and professions are included in this final covenant Moses conducts on the last day of his life. 

With this being read right before the high holidays we note how no other time of year in the Jewish calendar unites us in worship like Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We all find common cause with the goal of introspection and self improvement. And while we are still struggling with Covid, this year will see many more of us together at this special time which portends our continued path towards full community Jewish life. May it come speedily in our days and may we all be inscribed in the book of life for a happy and healthy new year!


Security for the month of Elul is sponsored by Chava Chalom in memory of her father. As a young adult, while living in Egypt, Mayer Chalom Ben Eliyahu HaLevi V’Esther served in the Royal British Navy. There, he assisted in smuggling thousands of Jews from Alexandria to Palestine. Those Jews later pioneered the state of Israel. Subsequently, he  escaped (Egypt) from religious persecution.

Mayer’s philosophy of life is best captured in Psalm 100, the sum of Thanksgiving. It says, “Evidu et HaShem b’simchah” ..... “ and you shall serve HaShem with gladness.”

Everything he did in life, whether in Egypt, and Europe, or in the United States, he did with sheer joy. He was a role model for his family and his community.
