Back at Pearlstone


Back at Pearlstone

Posted: 02 Feb 2014 12:35 PM PST

The last time I was at Pearlstone, I was still a rabbinic student, and I was here for two weeks of ALEPH rabbinic program intensive study. It was my first rabbinic school residency as a mom, and our son was less than a year old — which meant that first Ethan (for a few days before he went to TED Global and gave the TED talk which led to Rewire), and then my mother, stayed with me and took care of the baby while I was in class.

Then Now

Then, and now. What a difference 3.5 years makes.

I had some extraordinary experiences here. It was here that I wrote the mother psalm which begins “Don’t chew on your mama’s tefillin,” which to this day is one of my favorite poems in Waiting to Unfold! And it was here that I first got the chance to introduce my mom to my rabbinic school community and vice versa — a nice prelude to my entire mishpachaattending my rabbinic smicha the following winter.

Last time I came to Pearlstone, we drove down, encumbered by all of the gear required for a two-week trip with a baby: pack-n-play, quilts, stuffed animals, you name it. (And then had to purchase one item we hadn’t thought of — with no bathtub in the room, we resorted to giving baths in an inflatable rubber duckie which Ethan found at a local store.) Last time, I had to ensure that our preferred brand of baby food had the right hechsher to enter the dining hall.

This morning I watched cartoons and played board games with our son, ate a delicious breakfast cooked by my spouse, and then traveled solo to Albany, on my flight, and through the Baltimore airport where I met up with three otherRabbis Without Borders. Together we drove to Pearlstone. And in about half an hour, this year’s RWB Alumni Retreat will begin.

I’m looking really forward to a few days of learning, (re)connecting, strengthening friendships, and being lovingly challenged to think outside of my usual boxes. It feels a little bit strange to be here without the loved ones who surrounded me last time I was here. But I’m really excited to see members of my RWB fellows cohort, and to meet rabbis from the previous cohorts who I have until now only known online. I’m really grateful to be part of this hevre(community of friends.)

What we give to make space for God: thoughts on Terumah

Posted: 02 Feb 2014 04:00 AM PST

UrlHere’s the short d’var Torah I offered yesterday at my shul for parashat Terumah. (Cross-posted to my From the Rabbi blog.)


This Torah portion contains one of my favorite verses in Torah, a verse I choose to preach on every year: “Let them make Me a sanctuary, that I might dwell within them.” We build the sanctuary not so that God can dwell in it — no matter how beautiful its design or furnishings — but so God can dwell in us.

And yet, the beautiful design and furnishings seem to be important. Because the Torah spends a lot of time talking about them.

For some weeks to come, we’ll continue hearing about the wood and the hammered gold, the supple leathers, the fabrics woven in the most precious of colors, all donated as gifts from those whose hearts so moved them.

What this says to me is: it’s important that we give freely, offering up to God things which are precious to us. We’re not building the Shekhinah (the indwelling Presence of God) a secondhand home out of scrap. In order to prepare our hearts for that Presence, we have to give something that matters to us.

The children of Israel gave their most precious items freely in order to build a place for the Shekhinah — in order to open up space for the Shekhinah in their hearts. What would we give, if we were similarly called?

Would we build a home for the Shekhinah out of iPads and Droid phones? Out of expensive clothes and shoes? What would be most meaningful for you to offer? What would make space in your heart for the unfolding of something new?

This morning, each of you is giving ninety minutes of your life to be in community together, to sing and pray together, to try to make a minyan together for those who grieve. Maybe the most precious offering we can give today is our time.

Ninety minutes for Shabbat services. Or half an hour for Torah study. Or five minutes before bed to say the bedtime Shema and look back over the day, to connect with God before sleep. Or fifteen minutes of daily morning prayer — or of simply sitting and cultivating gratitude for the gifts in your life.

You might wonder, what does God need with these minutes we offer up? But you might as well ask: what does God need with hammered gold and acacia wood? We open our hearts through the practice of giving. When we give, we let God in.

We read this morning about the poles which allowed the Israelites to carry the ark together. We receive the same call: to shoulder the burdens of holy community together. As our spiritual ancestors came together to build and carry the mishkan and the ark of the covenant, so we come together to build and carry our community.

“Let them make Me a sanctuary, that I might dwell within them.”

What if we made a mishkan, a dwelling-place for the Shekhinah, out of our attention — our intention — our collaboration — our time? How might holiness dwell within us, then?

02/02/14 – Remember the Days of Old: Jewish Consciousness in Historical Context – w/R. Mike Feuer

 01.02.2014

Sunday, Feb 2, 2014
Todays Topic: Christianity

~ Course Description ~
What is history? This question will drive our class as we search for truth along the path that Am Yisrael has traced through time. If you want to revolutionize your context for learning Torah and understanding our national experience, to infuse history with the depths of Jewish thought, then join this weekly exploration of Jewish consciousness in its historical perspective. We will anchor ourselves in a timeline of people and events, laid out from Daniel to the Zionist era. Our primary task will be to analyze the relationship between world history and the Jewish experience. Our goal will be a holistic vision of Jewish history. In addition to a sound education in the scope of history, this class offers a unique framework for an integrated understanding of the path we have taken through time. Come find the insight the past offers, and taste it’s inspiration for the future.

~ R. Mike Feuer ~
Rav Mike’s teaching style is a mix of desire for rigorous analysis and a passionate love of the poetry found in learning. He approaches learning and teaching as a process of mutual self development between teacher and student.

Rabbi Mike Feuer has learned Torah in a number of Jerusalem area institutions, including Yeshivat HaMivtar, the Mir Yeshiva and Sulam Yaakov. He received his semicha in Shabbat and Issur v’heter from Sulam Yaakov in conjunction with completing the Israeli Rabbinate issur v’heter certification.

~ Sulam Yaakov ~
Sulam Yaakov is the Nachlaot Community Beit Midrash for Leadership Development. Located in the heart of Jerusalem Sulam Yaakov offers daily morning meditations, Shaliach Tzibur training, morning seder, self-development workshops and more.

The Satmar Rebbe Shlita made a surprise visit to a Marine Park Synagogue in Brooklyn,NY

The Synagogue has started learning programs under the leadership of the Satmar rebbe and their esteemed Rov Rabbi Rokeach.

The shul members made a siyum on Seder Moed and the Satmar Rebbe surprised the shul in order to give them more chizuk to continue and at the same time enjoy the benfits of something the Rebbe started.

Two hundred people participated in the siyum.

The Satmar Rebbe wrote the first letter of a Sefer Torah that will be finished within a year and will imy’h go back for the hachnosos sefer torah.

Adar I 3, 5774 · February 3, 2014
Likutei Amarim, middle of Chapter 27

ואדרבה, העצבות היא מגסות הרוח

On the contrary, such sadness is due to conceit.

שאינו מכיר מקומו, ועל כן ירע לבבו על שאינו במדרגת צדיק

For he does not know his place, and that is why he is distressed because he has not attained the level of a tzaddik,

שלצדיקים בודאי אין נופלים להם הרהורי שטות כאלו

to whom such foolish thoughts surely do not occur.

כי אילו הי׳ מכיר מקומו, שהוא רחוק מאד ממדרגת צדיק

For were he to recognize his station, that he is very far from the rank oftzaddik,

והלואי היה בינוני ולא רשע כל ימיו אפילו שעה אחת

and would that he be a Beinoni and not a rasha for even a single moment throughout his life (i.e., this is what he should be striving for at present, rather than vainly desiring to be a tzaddik),

הרי זאת היא מדת הבינונים ועבודתם

then surely, this is the due measure of the Beinonim and their task:

לכבוש היצר וההרהור העולה מהלב למוח, ולהסיח דעתו לגמרי ממנו ולדחותו בשתי ידים, כנ״ל

To subdue the evil impulse and the thought that rises from the heart to the mind, and to completely avert his mind from it, repulsing it as it werewith both hands, as explained above in ch. 12.

The Alter Rebbe explained there that the evil in the soul of the Beinoni remains vigorous; his task is to prevent it from expressing itself in thought, speech, and action. Thus, he has no control over the occurence of evil thoughts in his mind, but only over his acceptance or rejection of these thoughts.
