Reflections on Parashat Beha'alotcha from Rabbi Jonathan Sacks:
The parsha of Beha’alotcha speaks about the silver trumpets – clarions – Moses was commanded to make. The Lord spoke to Moses, saying “Make two trumpets of silver; make them of hammered work. They shall serve you to summon the congregation [edah] and cause the camps [machanot] to journey” (Num. 10:1–2). This apparently simple passage became a springboard for one of the most profound meditations of the late Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik. It appears in his great essay Kol Dodi Dofek, on the Jewish approach to suffering. There are, says Rabbi Soloveitchik, two ways in which people become a group – a community, society, or nation. The first is when they face a common enemy. They band together for mutual protection. Like all animals who come together in herds or flocks to defend themselves against predators, we do this for our survival. Such a group is a machaneh – a camp, a defensive formation. To continue reading click here.
 
MEMBERSHIP PAYMENTS
We are taking this opportunity as a final reminder to please contact Mervyn Katz (our General Manager) if you are having any doubts as to whether your membership has been paid. We will imminently begin moving and removing seat plaques of those people who have not paid in order to allocate seats to members who have made payment arrangements. We want to ensure that you do not lose your seats because of a miscommunication where “he thought she had paid and she thought he had paid”. It will just take a couple of minutes out of your day to ensure your account is settled. Please call Mervyn in the office on 9371 7300, ext 5.
