2011 is finally here and we all closed the chapter on another decade of world history. Y2K, 9/11, the war, the economy, healthcare... just to name a few of the major events that each of us personally witnessed. So what's in store for us over the next ten years or even the next twelve months? That's a question that I could never answer. We should all continue to pray that the world's issues improve, but there is little you and I can do to change global trends. But on a personal level, now is the time to consider where we will be over the next few months. Most of those decisions are actually within our control. Will this be the year that we finally learn to read Hebrew or begin to attend a Shabbat service on a regular basis? Maybe, just maybe, this will be the year that we go on a trip to Israel for the very first time. There are so many possibilities and I hope that over the next few days we can all take the time to identify and target those areas that we know need improvement.
This Shabbat, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, America's Rabbi, will be coming to Boca Raton Synagogue and will be giving a special class on Saturday night at 8:00pm, THE KOSHER SUTRA - "Eight Sacred Secrets for Reigniting Desire and Restoring Passion for Life". There is a $15 admission, but please let me know if that's a problem and I will take care of it for you. By now you have probably seen the videos that I emailed of the Rabbi and you can see that he is very entertaining.
This past week I also started a new radio show called "Jewish Pride" I didn't promote it before hand because I wanted to make sure that it would work and I'm happy to report that it did. If you would like to hear the 15 minute preview, please click here. It's a great way to continue to teach our messages to people that can't attend our classes in person. As you would expect it's a lot of fun with great messages.
I hope that you have a chance to read the other articles on this newsletter and take a moment to visit our partners that are listed in the right column. Each has added so much to the Boca Raton Jewish Experience and you can learn a lot from each of them.
