I would like to thank everyone for helping to
make this a very meaningful Tisha B’Av. We had a
wonderful turnout to
, to the film, and to the class.It is a hard holiday but it is nice to be in it together.
May this have been the last Tisha B’Av that we have
to mourn and may next year we celebrate the day alltogether in the rebuilt city of Yerushalayim.

Dvar Torah of the WeekParshat VaetchananBy Rabbi David Silverberg (www.vbm-torah.org)
Parashat Vaetchanan includes the first of the three parshiyot of shema we recite twice daily. In thesecond verse of shema, Moshe bids, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul,and with all your might." Rashi interprets "with all your soul" as indicating that one must maintain his unbri-dled love towards the Almighty even at the expense of his life: "Even if He takes your life." One may not wor-ship any other alleged deity, even if his life is at stake.The Chiddushei HaRim suggests that a similar interpretation may be offered regarding the first clausein the verse: "with all your heart." In this context, argues the Chiddushei HaRim, Rashi's interpretation wouldread as follows: "even if He takes your heart." Meaning, one's devotion to God must withstand the spiritualchallenges and obstacles that confront every one of us regularly. Even when it seems as though God hastaken from us our heart - when we lack the desire and motivation to apply ourselves to Torah and mitzvot ac-cordingly, we are still bidden to love the Almighty. He is fully aware of the challenges facing us, of the difficul-ties that exist in maintaining a Torah lifestyle. He expects us to do our best, to demonstrate our devotion andcommitment even through the rough times, even at moments when it seems as though He has left us, takingour hearts with Him.Extending the Chiddushei HaRim's approach one step further, we may proceed to the final clause inthe verse, "with all your might." Chazal interpret this phrase in reference to money in particular. Thus, theverse demands our allegiance to God even during times of financial hardship. Whereas "with all your heart"requires devotion even in the face of spiritually trying circumstances, and "with all your soul" calls upon us togive our lives for His service, "with all your might" demands our unquestioning loyalty to God even when itappears that He has "turned against us," as it were. No matter what the circumstances, the strictures of theTorah bind us at every moment. This is the critical lesson that we must repeat - with all our heart and soul - atleast twice every day.

...It is really a pleasure to welcome to participants of the BJOTT shabbaton to our shul this Shabbos! What a greatorganization. I am sure by now you have read a little bit about them over the last few weeks in the bulletin. Theyhave come to West Hartford in order to spend time together with their peers but also to expose themselves to agreat New England community with the hope that many of them will end up staying in this area and making won-derful contributions to their professions and to the Jewish communities. It is very easy to decide to head to NYwhere Jewish life is relatively easy. It is inspiring to see people who wish to explore the smaller communities be-tween Boston and New York where every person counts and where they can make a huge impact on communallife.
Yasher Koach
. Welcome
we are honored that you chose West Hartford! We hope you enjoy your Shabboshere with us!Shabbat Shalom
