  • Rosh Hashanah
    Starts: 9:00 am
    Ends: September 25, 2014 - 1:00 pm
    Location: Kehillat Ohr Tzion, 879 Hopkins Rd. Williamsville, NY 14221
    Description: From Rabbi Strosberg:
    A question was recently asked after Friday night services the week after the KOT trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: If you could experience any musical performance from any band, which would it be? It's a thought provoking question but for me, the answer was obvious: The Beatles. I don't think there is another group of musicians that composed so many quality songs in so many diverse styles. I remember how surprised I was when I learned that the Beatles were together as a group for only ten years. It's as if their creative well never ran dry.
    Many of us wish that our experience of davening in shul would be a continuous flow of inspiration, creativity and passion. But oftentimes it's hard to connect to the service; we're lucky to feel a moment of true inspiration even once in a while. Rebbe Nachman teaches, however, that this is normal. He says that if you keep at it and recite the prayers even when you aren't feeling inspired, eventually when you do have that one meaningful davening, it will open the gates of heaven and shlep with it all the other prayers that you thought were wasted.
    There is no more likely time for that activating moment to occur than during the High Holidays. It could happen during the silent prayer, or while listening to the shofar, or while humming along to the chazzan's melodies. I encourage everyone to make the most out of your time in shul during the upcoming Yamim Tovim, and throughout the coming year.

    Ketivah V'Chatimah Tova
    May everyone be inscribed for a happy healthy year.
