Forging a new Future for the Jewish Community on the Kitsap Penisula
1410 11th Street, Bremerton, WA 98337
As we continue into this uncharted territory. I wanted to share some thoughts with all of you. Being in the wilderness is hard. The Torah teaches that our people had many issues as they worked to find their new reality in the wilderness upon the departure from Egypt. They dealt with finding their faith. They dealt with hunger and water issues. And – they dealt with fear, as they needed to scout the Land of Israel.
Moving through a desert with countless trials and tests, presents many angsts for us. Each person and family may experience different anxieties and in different ways. It is hard to say how we should feel at a time like this one. Perhaps some are looking at this pandemic as another blip in history. Yet, others may view this pandemic as direct finger of God’s theodicy brought into society for some ultimate reason.
Yet, the end results may be similar, the manifestation of fear and apprehension. I wanted to let each of you know that I am here for you and your families. Even at a time whereby we cannot meet in my office at CBH, I can offer to have virtual meetings with you. If anyone desires a meeting, please let me know and we can either schedule a Zoom or FB video chat.
The CBH board and myself are here for each of you at this time. We want to provide the best spiritual sustenance and pastoral care as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact either one of our board members or myself.
