A BRIEF JEWISH THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
For Friday night, RSVP needed for dinner only ($5.00/pp). It is very important that we have a good showing. The members of Concord Baptist are looking forward to getting to know the members of Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills.
Torah Truth in Honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Torah is not a book facts (no matter what fundamentalists say), rather it is a book filled with life truths.
In the Garden of Eden story, why did G-d start humanity with one being, Adam, and not start things off by creating a billion diverse people all at once? After all, G-d could have populated the earth in many ways! The rabbis explain it this way, “So that no one can boast, “I am of nobler lineage,”. All humankind are descended from the same person. All are equal before G-d. And so the families of nations can not quarrel, saying “We are greater than other peoples.” (Talmud) All children of Adam share the same dam (blood).
Shabbat Shalom, RabbiB
