The Rabbi's Message
Dear Members and Congregants
We look forward to seeing you at the Minsk during the High Holidays. The proscribed guidelines for distancing and sanitizing will be in place. Assembling in Shul will give us strength and free us to begin a deeper conversation with G-D. It was only 5781 years ago, the original Rosh Hashana , when G-D Almighty breathed the soul of life into the nostrils of Adam. [Genesis 2:7] We want the same thing. G-D Almighty, please freshen me up – form me with a new spirit. and I will sing to YOU “Shir Chadash”, a new song, Amen!
Although we didn’t have services from April till mid-June, we continued to serve a nutritious supper at the Shul daily and all Shabbos meals and Passover Seders. The Minsk is a Shul and a Home so we were open.
Alternatively, there will be an outdoor Shofar blowing by Tashlich, תשליך at 5:30pm on Sunday, along Spadina Pier (the pier extending into the lake from where Spadina meets Queens Quay). Tashlich is an ancient Jewish practice to go to a body of water especially on Rosh HaShana. We implore HASHEM to cast our sins into the depths of the sea. (Why not to burn them?)
The Donation, Tickets, and Membership form will be sent in a upcoming email together with the Yom Kippur schedule. Please take care of your H.H. ticket payments after Rosh HaShana.
