Post Thanksgiving Gratitude


In this week's parasha, Hayyei Sarah,Abraham dies, and his sons,

Isaac and Ishmael, who have been at odds, jointly bury him.

Our sages comment that the brothers' actions underscore

the importance that reconciliation should play in our lives.

During this season of giving thanks, we will look at how

having gratitude for our material and spiritual blessings

might help us on a journey to reconciliation.

We invite you to 
read theparasha here, and we look forward

to seeing you this Friday at 8 PM for an evening of

song and prayer, schmoozing and noshing.

Blessings for joyous Thanksgiving,
Rabbis Altarescu and Levy
