As we complete the instructions regarding the tabernacle and its operation we have the Abarbanel to help put it all in perspective.

 

While we read this week of one of the great failures of the Jewish nation with the sin of the golden calf, it remains a great example of our resilience. What could be more disastrous than the need to destroy the amazing tablets literally brought down from high but never actually received in tact by the people? On the other hand, what could be more wondrous than in the aftermath of such a tragedy, new tablets were forged and installed in the tabernacle for the next 1000 years?! Similarly, how does a nation recover from the stunning loss of the temple of Solomon and yet within 70 years the structure was rebuilt, albeit not quite as grand as the first, but still historically unprecedented. Finally, how does a nation, driven from its land for almost 2000 years, return to create a country as vibrant as the State of Israel is in the 21st century?

 

The paradigm was established in this week’s portion and remains as a beacon of hope that will carry us all to the messianic era speedily on our days!

We invite you to join us at the Tribeca Synagogue on Friday evening, March 8 for a special family Shabbat service and kiddush sponsored by Nancy Aaronson and Perry Parker in honor of the Yahrzeit of Perry's father, and truly one of the founding fathers of our shul, George Parker, who passed away last year at the age of 92.  George always enjoyed a good celebration, and we want the service and the dinner afterwards to be a joyous celebration of the downtown community that he helped to build.  All are welcome; RSVPs are requested so we can order and prepare the right amount of food and desserts.  We hope you will join us!  Services will begin at 5:45 pm, dinner to follow.
