August 13th is a date I will long remember. That Shabbat morning Tommy Wright became a bar mitzvah in our sanctuary. I have been to hundreds of b’nai mitzvah over the years but none were this memorable.
This week with Parashat Reeh, we begin a series of portions in Deuteronomy in which Moses explains to the people that they have the choice between blessings and curses. They can choose to follow God’s commandments or to ignore God’s commandment.
