  • COVID-19

    I am writing to express my heartfelt solidarity with you during these tense and troubling times. I am increasing the number of calls during this time in order to continue to check in with you. I encourage you to also be proactive in reaching out to check in with each other in the congregation. If you know of someone from our congregation or from the Jewish community who are not members of any congregations and need our support, please let me know. All available Rabbis in Perth are working together with the CCJWA to support the wider community.

    My first Parsha theme is silence. Think about the characteristics of a fire. There are bright flames and intense heat. It is vivid and alive. But is it silent? No. When you read the sad stories about survivors and the firefighters of the recent terrible bushfires around Australia, many of them refer to the roaring rush of flames and wind, and sounds that were like explosions. So, how did Moses hear God through the fire? And how did God make his presence known? Today, could God always be communicating with us, but we don’t hear it? Do we all live lives that are too busy to take the time to listen to God? There might not be fire around us, but the noise comes in other ways, through devices and technology, or machinery, or the constant stimulation that we all seem to crave these days. We need to learn the sounds of silence and how to listen for God.
