Dear Rodeph Sholom Family,
The Hebrew word for “Judaism” is Yehadut, from the root hodah – gratitude. In namesake, thanksgiving is at the root of our tradition. Each morning and 100 more times each day we are invited to offer blessings of thanks. But gratitude is meant to be more than an attitude in Judaism. In cultivating our own acknowledgement of blessing, our gratitude can compel us to act.
As much of our country turns in national ritual to Thanksgiving, we as a community turn our gratitude into action. Below, please find opportunities to share our bounty and to celebrate those who pour their dedication and time into Rodeph Sholom. As we reflect back on more than a year and a half of COVID, we feel with greater potency the dedication of our congregants to hold together and support one another with generosity and care.
