A message from Rabbi Eligberg, Cantor Marx and the staff at Temple Israel of Albany

Over the past few days, we have watched with horror and heartbreak at the violence that has engulfed the State of Israel. Communities are being torn apart, buildings are being destroyed, and most tragically, lives are being lost.

Thousands of rockets have been fired indiscriminately at our brothers and sisters in Israeli towns and cities. In response, the Israel Defense Forces have attacked Hamas and other terrorist groups, all of which regrettably operate in heavily populated areas, relying on civilians as human shields. The loss of life on both sides of this conflict is devastating, and we grieve with all of those who lost loved ones.

We pray for leaders in the United States and Israel to have wisdom and pursue justice, we pray for the heroic defenders of our nation and the Holy Land to have strength and restraint, and we pray for all civilians to have safety and security. The Masorti movement, what we in the United States call ‘Conservative Judaism,’ has asked that we join together in the Prayer for Peace below.

It is our deepest hope that the loss of life, the civil strife, and the violence and terror will be ended swiftly so that all residents of the State of Israel and the surrounding region can enjoy lives of Shalom, Salaam, lives of peace.

A Prayer for Peace from the Masorti Movement

May it be Your will,
Holy One, our God, our ancestors’ God,
that you erase war and bloodshed from the world
and in its place draw down
A great and glorious peace
so that nation shall not lift up sword against nation
Neither shall they learn war any more.

Rather, may all the inhabitants of the earth
recognize and deeply know
this great truth:
that we have not come into this world
for strife and division
nor for hatred and rage,
nor provocation and bloodshed.

We have come here only
to encounter You
eternally blessed One.

And so,
we ask your compassion upon us;
raise up, by us, what is written:

I shall place peace upon the earth
and you shall lie down safe and undisturbed
and I shall banish evil beasts from the earth
and the sword shall not pass through your land
but let justice come in waves like water
and righteousness flow like a river,
for the earth shall be full
of the knowledge of the Holy One
as the waters cover the sea

So may it be.
And we say:
Amen

(The quotations are: Isaiah 2:4, Leviticus 26:6, Amos 5:24 and Isaiah 11:9)

We were so fortunate to see and hear Debbie Friedman at Temple Israel!
and in my mind's eye I still envision Rabbi Paul Silton and Cantor Chaim Pickar up on the Bima and Sid Cohen, the most amiable Executive Director, Faye Silton, the education director, Esther , Susan and Zoey, the nursery school teachers, and Harry Ellowitz and the other Minyanaires- making TI a welcoming house of worship where"everyone knew your name".
Many thanks to this week's supporters of Sponsor-A-Stream! Meghan & Gary Ginsburg - in honor of the incredible work that the main office staff has been doing Vivian & Ted Brown - in honor of the yahrzeit of Richard Brown
Temple Israel was our family's home for many years, and we were all active members, so I am thrilled to let you know that I have self-published a magical book for children- "the Radiant Rainbow Cap"- for sale on Amazon. I just wanted old TI members to cuddle up and have fun reading with their children and grandchildren. I hope all is well and you will take a look

Having trouble finding the High Holiday Calendar on the Calendar link on the website. You seem to have to page through the bulletin, page by page until you happen upon it. Also, when you click the contact link on the website, for example on the leadership page, the link misspells part of the address, so you get the following error message: Your message wasn't delivered to [email protected] because the domain tialbnay.org couldn't be found. Check for typos or unnecessary spaces and try again. This is what the link puts in the address of your email form:[email protected]. Does not work, of course. ☹️
