ON THE BACK BURNER

September 4

Attending yet another funeral at our small Congregation reminded everyone there of their mortality. Except for the family, most of us hadn't had a chance to know the man who died. Judging by the words of two family members giving an eulogy, he would have been a nice person to know. Those of us who wanted to be there to show our Congregations support and caring for the widow and the family, got us reflective and we reached out to each other for closeness to those here who have become our family . Our Congregation is known for its caring and for our reaching out to new people, and to people who need just a little bit of help to get through a time when help is needed. Being a part of this has made me a better person. It might be corny, but I do believe , that for the most part, we live up to and practice the very basics of Judaism..do as you would have others do unto you. Just saying..
