to the synagogue Neve Shalom, a link in the chain of Jewish tradition that
is millennia old. It is a large space, much larger than it looks because
when you walk through these doors, you walk into Jerusalem, into Casablanca,
into Minsk, into Salonika, into Strasbourg--into this space where Jews
have sung the same song to G*d for generations. When you enter here, you
have entered a larger space than you see. We belong to something greater
The Baal Shem Tov used to say, there is no room for G*d in a person too full of self. Less self, more other, less self, more Other--this is the dynamic of an emerging spirituality. Synagogue space is large enough to allow anyone to find their way in, and we have centuries of time on our side.

The I is a thief, said the holy Rabbi. It snatches away the partial and mistakes it for the whole. Only Everything is everything. We invite you to enter synagogue space and synagogue time with us now, never alone, always accompanied by good companions, and by the additional soul each of us inherits by virtue of time.
Thanks for being here. Shalom aleikhem, peace to you, aleikhem shalom.
