    Dear Friends,
      Our tradition tells us that the Jewish people experienced a great moment of unity at Mount Sinai, described in this week's Torah portion. At the present time it feels like the Jewish people are experiencing a great moment of disunity. I'll explain why at our Livestream Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

        At our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM) comments by Rashi will also touch on the theme of unity at the giving of the Torah.

         Hatemail- Antisemitism in Picture Postcards  is the subject of my final JPS webinar on Monday (7:30 PM- rescheduled) and it is an eye-opening look at how hate spread on the social media of the late 19th and early 20th century. 

         Hola- our always energetic president would like to start a Spanish Club, for people with a basic command to improve their speaking. Interested? Contact: michael.r.fishbein@gmail.com.

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends.
      Today is the 15th day, the full moon, of the Hebrew month of Shevat, which means that it is Tu Bishvat—the New Year of Trees.  

       At our Livestream Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM) we will feature festive music from this minor but popular holiday, and an appropriately environmental message for this Jewish Arbor Day.  

      At our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM) comments by Rashi prompt the question: do men and women have different leadership styles?

        The subject of "FDR and the Jews" remains controversial to this day, and is the subject of my next JPS webinar on Monday (7:30 PM), based on our new, and provocative, book The Jews Should Keep Quiet. 

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    This Week at Adas Emuno

    Jan. 21, 2021
    Dear Friends,
      We celebrate the inauguration of our new president and our quest for a more perfect union at our Zoom Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

       Our exploration of the Book of Exodus continues at our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM). 

       Speaking of books, the relatively untold story of how the Nazis attempted to destroy the Jews not just physically but culturally, with the massive theft of Jewish books, and the restoration of that heritage by the Allies after the war, is the subject of my third JPS seminar on Monday (7:30 PM).

    Shabbat shalom,

    Rabbi Barry Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      The observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is even more significant this year in light of the tragic events of the last weeks.
      At our Livestream Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM) we will celebrate King's lessons and legacy in words and music.

       At our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM) we are reading the story of the Exodus that inspired King.
       His legacy will also be discussed at our Sunday morning school service and Confirmation Class.
        
        My second JPS New Author Webinar that takes place Monday evening (7:30 PM) is an absolute eye-opener, "HateMail: Anti-Semitism in Picture Postcards".

    Shabbat shalom.
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      The confluence of Shabbat with Christmas leads me to an international controversy that you might have missed- the fate of the largest church ever built. I'll fill you in on the intriguing details at our Zoom Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

         At our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM) we continue to probe the heartbreaking family dynamics of Joseph and his brothers.

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      We bid goodbye to a surprisingly festive Hanukkah, despite all the challenges, with our final outdoor lighting tonight (7:00 PM). Thanks to all who participated in our lightings, service and party! And please send in your Mitzvah Mall contributions by mail, on-line donation or an envelope in our school mail box. 

       At our Zoom Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM) we'll speak about  a topic that has long fascinated students of history: "The Twelve Tribes of Israel- Myth and Reality".

       At our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM), deep into the Joseph story,  we'll  consider the provocative question of whether Joseph truly forgave his brothers.

       Book Club reminder: Read The Watchmaker’s Daughter by Sonia Taitz for our next meeting on Jan. 11. Available at local libraries, Amazon, and Kindle. A stirring memoir by the daughter of Holocaust survivors set in Washington Heights.

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz
