TODAY IS SEVEN DAYS, WHICH IS ONE WEEK, OF THE OMER
Being Jewish for me is about blessings—not only for milestones but during each and every day. We are blessed to connect to those we love, and to people we have yet to befriend. We are blessed to find identity and purpose and to be able to rally resources to meet challenges. We are blessed to learn. We are certainly blessed to be part of a rich tradition and to be able to expand upon that tradition to make it meaningful.
I recognize the blessings of celebration: the seasonal cycle of holidays and the weekly joy of Shabbat. And I marvel at raising our family in a community that feels like family: Temple Beth Abraham, a huge blessing in our lives.
