Special Events

October 29, 12:00pm
Wednesdays with the Rabbi

Rabbi Gersh Zylberman
will continue his once-monthly sessions on Current Events through a Jewish lens.
This week's topic:
“The Gun Control Debate
 through a Jewish Lens”.
In the wake of yet another shooting incident, what do Jewish values say about this challenging issue?

In this week’s narrative of the Tower of Babel, we find a cautionary tale. The builders were more concerned with the structure and less concerned with the people involved in the construction. The Midrash teaches that

if a man fell from the tower and was killed, no one grieved. But, if a brick fell from the tower they all grieved because their time
was held up, waiting to manufacture,
another brick!
This speaks to our time when materialism has taken pride of place over relationships.
We mistakenly think that the more we can have
and the more we can do should take precedence over what
and who we are. In the pursuit of material abundance, so many have given up so much
 for so little.
