Shabbat Intention: A Teaching for Re'eh

Every day, set before us,

Are choices.


How will we respond to what we encounter?

To whm, to what, will we remain true?

Where will we bestow our attention, our heart?

What will guide our words and deeds?


See, the Mystery calls,

See what is really present.


You know I am here,

Always. Forever.

Hidden inside the blessing and curse.

It takes practice and the support of community

            To see through layers of hope and fear,

            To choose the path of love and presence,

            To keep looking and not turn away.

Let us offer our blessings and support to each other as we lift our eyes and begin to turn toward 5778.

Shabbat Shalom.

Rabbi Yael
