This week we close out the book of Leviticus with a double portion and also bless the new month of Sivan. Throughout the reading we can sense another kind of progression that the Torah often lays out. In this case we read about how we should first help a person losing his field, then someone losing his house, then someone losing his freedom. The sages explain that this isn’t a random progression but due to the person not respecting the sabbatical year (Shemita) which shows that one has lost his awareness of God’s beneficence.
Even though losses build upon each other and may even be intolerable, through this process one's friends and family must be there for support and help a person to redeem himself in time  before reaching the worst case scenario.
This year happens to be an actual Sabbatical year in the Jewish calendar and is observed throughout the land of Israel. Although we are not directly involved in its observance we might take the opportunity to look over the way our lives are progressing and see if there may be some divine hints we are ignoring.

Once again TriBeCa Synagogue notes the passing of one of our generation’s great leaders, Belda Lindenbaum, who was the mother of our past president Victoria Feder. Together with the whole Feder family, Belda and Marcel have been great friends of the synagogue for many years. It is our deepest hope that the great work Belda accomplished in her lifetime will continue for generations to come.
Shiva will be observed at the Lindenbaum home 145 Central Park West, corner of 74th street, apartment 3C, beginning Wednesday morning. Minyanim will be weekday mornings at 8:00 am, Sunday morning at 9:00 am and evenings at 7:30 pm. The family welcomes visitors from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm2:00 to 6:00 pm and 7:30 - 9:00 pm(10:30 on Saturday.)  Shiva concludes after shacharit Monday, May 18.
