In this 3rd to last portion we introduce the concept of improper thoughts. One might have thought that one is only responsible for actions, but the verses say otherwise: and if a person blesses oneself in their heart and says all will be right with me (no matter how I behave) the Lord will not forgive.

Indeed, Maimonides in his codes states that “just like a person has to repent from evil deeds, one has to repent from evil thoughts”.


This does seem like a tall order, however, how does one control one’s thoughts?!


My approach would be that we’re not talking about random thoughts but those that grow out of holding on to a jaded perspective on life or people. If one is at peace with the world and life, one’s thoughts in general will emanate in a much gentler fashion than one who is angry or spiteful. So at this special time of year, before we get into the process of reforming our actions, let’s take a little time to develop a healthier take on where we find ourselves in this world. Everything else will follow naturally!


Please renew your membership and/or reserve your seats ASAP!


There will be office hours on Sunday from 9am to 2pm (but don’t wait until then!)



We are also working hard to build our profile on social media. Please take the opportunity to get a richer view of the fabric of our synagogue life!
