From Rabbi Avi -

Chodesh Tov, friends. I sometimes teach from Nechama Nadborny Burgeman's book The Twelve Dimensions of Israel, itself taken from the writings of the Bnei Yisochar and other teachers on the tikunim/fixings of each month. The tikunim for this month, Kislev, are related to sleep, bitichon/trust, the large intestine, the Sefira of Netzach, and the tribe of Benjamin. Tikun exists of the individual and communal level in all of these ways (the physical, the psychological, and the spiritual) as well. Staying connected as a community when we can not be together physically is important, even more so for people who live by themselves. A sense of trust can be built when one feels that they are part of a connected community as well as one's trust in a Higher Power. We all probably know someone who might feel cut off from a community, whether it is in Seattle or elsewhere.  We are blessed with the technology to be connected almost anywhere in the world. I would like to challenge our community to reach out to at least 2 people before Shabbat that you are not regularly in touch with, anywhere in the world. Even brief interactions go a long way. For those who are alone or who feel alone at this time, this can be as life-sustaining as the first glass of water after a fast.

Where are you from?

I'm from New Jersey, and I went to college in Boston. 

Can you share a good travel memory?

I love to travel! This photo is from a safari in the Serengeti. My family traveled to Tanzania and Zanzibar in 2019 after my sister spent a semester in Kenya. We slept in tents with no barriers between us and the animals - families of elephants marched right through our campsite!

What's your favorite current boardgame or hobby?

I've improved my ultimate frisbee skills over the past few months, and it's been fun to play a few pickup games with friends. I also just started horseback riding lessons, which is something I've always wanted to do.

What appeals to you about Mercaz or about the North End community in general?

The members of our community have always been welcoming to me, both when I used to visit Seattle and since I moved. Although this year hasn't been as expected, I'm grateful for the people I've been able to spend time with, and I look forward to getting to know many in our community better.
