Shabbat to Shabbat: Welcome Cantor Patti Linsky

Author // Rabbi Ron M. Segal Categories // D'var Torah

For many, this week saw the happy return of pizza, pasta, bread and other delicious, leavened carbohydrates following the conclusion of our Passover festival. Of the countless lessons we learn from our Seders and Passover observance each year, I personally find that the spiritual messages never fail to speak to me clearly and powerfully. For instance, one timeless teaching which is always in need of repeating reminds us that, just as we remove leavened products from our homes and diet, so, too, should we strive during Passover to remove those personal qualities which have become ‘puffed up’ within us – arrogance, narcissism, egotism, etc. Now that Passover has concluded, the invitation, of course, is that while we may resume consuming leavened foods, we should still strive to remain humble, gracious and compassionate in spirit.

This Shabbat at Temple Sinai provides a meaningful worship opportunity to aid us in our ongoing spiritual quest as we welcome Cantor Patti Linsky to the bima. Following this evening’s one woman 7:30 PM show, “Altar Ego,” in which our guest artist creatively presents her own spiritual journey of recovery from substance abuse, Cantor Linsky will share her musical and spiritual gifts with us during Shabbat services. As we continue our own personal journeys of redemption from whatever “Egypt” we each confront in life, we are delighted to welcome teachers and guests whose example and personal stories might inspire us toward renewal and continued humility. We hope you will join us for a meaningful, liberating and joyous Shabbat evening.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Ron Segal
