Volume 16 Number 35, 25th of Sivan 5775, June 12 '15

 

Message from the Rabbi
 

A friend of mine told me he feels as if he is doomed to fail in life. “No matter what I try doing,” he confided, “I’m bound for disaster.”

And he’s right. As long we think we will fail, that’s probably going to happen. On the other hand, if we look ourselves in the eye and tell ourselves that we are made in the divine image by the omnipotent G-d who can do anything, then we will indeed be able to do anything.

In fact, this is the crux of this week’s Torah portion. Moses dispatches 12 spies to scout out the future Land of Israel. They are scared off by the fortified cities, towering warriors and outlandish produce. And they had every reason to be scared. Because they lacked confidence, the challenges were indeed insurmountable.

But Caleb and Joshua knew better. They knew that G-d was with them. They know that they could do better, and that they would do better. And they were right.

###

Need a Minyan?

If you need a Minyan to say Kaddish please give the office at least a few days notice. We are happy to provide this important service, but it takes time to arrange enough participants to assure the quorum is present. Please email info@ChabadatLaCosta.com your request.

Learn the Code of Jewish Law with Rabbi Eilfort

A daily class in practical Jewish Law is held immediately following the Minyan taught by Rabbi Eilfort. Using the Code of Jewish Law, known in Hebrew as the Shulchan Aruch, participants are able to discuss the laws while learning about the ongoing opportunities one has to serve the Almighty on a moment-by-moment basis. The class begins at about 8:50am and lasts for about 20 minutes. There is no charge to attend.

Memorial Plaques & Tree of Life Plaques Available

Our beautiful Memorial Boards have been installed. We specifically designed our custom-built bookcases to ‘frame’ each of the boards. The first Memorial Board was dedicated by the Brunelle Family and the new Board was dedicated by the Alter Family.

We are currently offering Memorial Plaques to those who wish to perpetually honor the memory of a loved one in a most dignified and permanent manner. Those who dedicate Memorial Plaques will also receive yearly reminders of the Yarzeit and the light on the Board will be illuminated each year on the Yarzeit.

We also have a gorgeous Tree of Life dedicated by the Lieberman Family that will shortly be going up. The purpose of the plaques on the Tree of Life is to commemorate joyous occasions (like Bar/Bat Mitzvah, anniversaries, special birthdays, weddings etc.).

The donation is only $360 per plaque for either the Memorial Board or the Tree of Life. Those who wish to participate should send an email toinfo@ChabadatLaCosta.com, or call Rabbi Eilfort at 760-943-8891.

Cell Phones & Chatting During Services

Needless to say the sanctuary on Shabbat or holidays is a place that must be conducive to reflective prayers and serenity. To help keep it this way, please refrain from engaging in any conversations during services and please do not bring in your cell phone. Thank you for your cooperation.

Shul Etiquette

Those who join us regularly for Shabbat services will agree that we have something very special going. The family-friendly atmosphere is unique and most inviting. We welcome everyone as though he/she is a long time member of the family.

At the same time it is important to remember that we are a synagogue. Our sanctuary is meant to be a place where it is conducive to finding inner peace and tranquility. That is why the Rabbis have many laws concerning the decorum of a shul.

It is appropriate to dress modestly and to dress somewhat formally in shul. Men should wear button down shirts, slacks (no jeans or shorts), with jackets and even ties when possible. Of course the head is to be kept covered at all times. Women should wear skirts that go past the knees and blouses with high neck lines and sleeves that cover the elbows. Married women should wear hats and the like.

Children must be supervised at all times by the parents except during Junior Congregation (11:30am). While we want the children to have a great time together it is also important that they do not become so wild and/or boisterous that they disturb those of us who are participating in the services.

We must remember that we should walk to shul and never park in the parking lot if there already eight cars parked. Finally, and we fully realize this goes against Jewish DNA, it is appropriate to come to shul ON TIME. While we know everyone is vying to be counted as the 10th, we are equally sure Hashem will give extra credit to those who come ON TIME at 10am (not to be confused with 11:30). We look forward to seeing you here!

Volume 16 Number 34, 18th of Sivan 5775, June 5 '15

 

Message from the Rabbi
 

We are in a strange time of year.

It’s June, and spring is giving way to summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Long days with beautiful weather, smiling graduates draped in silky gowns, and loving couples standing under chuppahs are what come to mind.

Yet it is also the month of Sivan, a tragic month for our people. From the Crusades to the Holocaust, it’s eerie to note how many massacres were carried out against our people in this month.

But Sivan is also a happy month, the third month, when G-d chose to give us His Torah, forever changing the course of history for the better.

Let’s hope and pray that this month continues to bring only the best to our nation and to the world.

JLI Course Continues

Have you ever questioned the authenticity of our Jewish tradition?

Is there any evidence supporting the veracity of Judaism as we practice it today?

What was invented by the rabbis, and what can be traced back to ancient biblical verses?

And how do contemporary rabbis know how to adapt biblical law for modern times?

Just as science follows the scientific method, Jewish tradition has its own system to ensure its authenticity remains intact.

Judaism Decoded, the upcoming JLI series, sheds light on the mysteries surrounding Biblical interpretation.

How do we know our interpretation is true?

If it is true, why is it subject to differences of opinion?

With so many interpretations to choose from, how do we know which one reflects its original intent?

Discover the sheer elegance of the “source code” on which Torah law is built; enjoy the razor-sharp reasoning, intelligent debate, and compelling arguments of the Talmudic dialectic; and get a fascinating, behind-the-scenes glimpse of the most intellectually sophisticated religion in existence.

Chabad at La Costa in conjunction with the Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will present “Judaism Decoded,”the institute’s new six-session Spring 2015 course. Rabbi Eilfortwill conduct the six course sessions. We'll explore the Torah like never before.

Like all JLI programs, “Judaism Decoded” is designed to appeal to people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship.

Interested students may call 760-943-8891or visit www.myJLI.com for registration and other course-related information.
