Tu B'Shbat will be celebrated on
Thursday January 28th. 
         

                                                                     

                         It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of                             Hazzan Shlom Shemer A"H.

Shlomo A"H was the Hazzan in our Synogogue during the summer months for several years and served our community with love and passion of the prayers.

SHABBAT BO

Teach Them to Reach Them

And so that you may relate in the ears of your son and your son's son that I made mockery of Egypt and my signs that I placed among them - that you may know that I am Hashem. (Shemot 10:2)

G-d sent 10 plagues to the Egyptians. If the purpose of the plagues was to compel Pharaoh to send the Jews from Egypt, why couldn't one massive plague suffice?

When one makes food for his own consumption, he knows exactly what he wants. He knows the type of food, the quantity and the spices that he likes. However, when one makes food to sell he doesn't know everyone's taste so he needs to make a variety of dishes to ensure that there will be something for everyone.

The Dubno Maagid explains that, the purpose of the plagues was to teach the children of Israel, as well as all future generations, that G-d is not a distant, uninterested Creator - rather, He is the master and sustainer of the universe day by day. The people were to relate all the miracles to their children, and their children to their children and so on. Since different people are impressed and amazed by different things, Hashem performed a variety of miracles to ensure that everyone would be impressed and pass it down to the next generation.

Every person has his own personality and own way of looking at things. Some children have a more creative mind while others have an easier time remembering information. Every child is fascinated by something else. It is this this light that we should relate the plagues on the Egyptians and the exodus of our people to our children. Every child needs to be raised and taught in a specific way. Our job is to tap into their inclination and raise them accordingly.

SHABBAT SHALOM! 

Rabbi Isaac Farhi
