Saying Good-Bye to  an Old Friend

It is with a tear in our eye that we see our spiritual home from 1959 to 1989 being demolished to make way for a new building. It was more than a building. It was where children were educated and met lifelong friends. It is where hundreds upon hundreds of people stood beneath the chuppah.

It is where Rabbi Moses Lehrman, Rabbi Stanley Rosenbaum and Cantor Louis Klein led us in shabbat and yom tov services. It is where the v'ne'emar boys became men. They can tear down the building but the memories will last a lifetime.

We Stand Hand in Hand and Heart to Heart

Dear Friends, 

We are shocked and heartbroken by last weekend’s tragic events at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There are no words to express the sense of loss, sorrow, and anger that has rippled across Jewish communities throughout the United States and the world in the wake of this tragedy.

In the midst of this devastation, we stand heart to heart with our fellow community members in Pittsburgh. We praise local law enforcement and first responders for their quick and courageous acts. We mourn for those who have been taken from us, and pray for the recovery of those who were wounded.

The alarming resurgence of bigotry, hate, and dangerous rhetoric that has spread across this nation in recent years, emboldening those who seek to do harm and perpetuate such acts of hate, needs swift and active condemnation from every office of leadership in this country.

As you know, the safety and security of our community is our top priority at Congregation B’nai Moshe, now and always! In the past and currently, we are working with the West Bloomfield Police Department, and the Jewish Federation of Metro Detroit (among other organizations) to constantly assess, and re-evaluate in real time, all synagogue security and safety procedures and protocols. Most visibly of course, is our recent introduction of our regular security officer at every Shabbat service – a service directly supported through the newly implemented membership security fee. Simply put, our gratitude to this elite and deeply engaged team of professionals (and our congregation that supports them) knows no bounds. The well-being of our children, members, and staff is our top priority, which is why we remain in frequent contact with security officials and are prepared to respond at a moment’s notice to any concern.

We are a people who believe in the power community as a base from which we can support one another in times of sorrow and celebrate together in times of joy. At the center of our community is the Tree of Life, The Torah containing the narrative of our people’s spiritual journey. This coming Shabbat as we take the out Torah we will be celebrating the beauty of Judaism.  At the same time we also acknowledge the horrific attack on the Tree of Life Congregation and the Jewish people at large.

Shomer Yisrae'l. Shomer Am Kadosh. Shomer Olam Echad. Master of the World, guard us, protect us, empower us -- for each other and for all of Your creations.

L'shalom,

Rabbi Shalom Kantor

Cantor Earl Berris

Tailgate Shabbat Scores a Touchdown

 On Friday evening, October 19, B'nai Moshe celebrated Tailgate Shabbat the night before the big Michigan vs Michigan State football game in East Lansing.   We dressed in our school colors (one even wore Ohio State colors) and enjoyed a little friendly rivalry for Adon Olam and then gathered together for a tailgate dinner of chicken wings, chicken legs, coney dogs, tater tots and we even had a beer tent.  We played corn hole and pitched horseshoes.

 It was almost like being at the game without all the wind and rain.  Regardless of the outcome of the big game, everyone who  celebrated were winners.
