Rabbi Zinkow's Sermon 7-24-15

Did you see the story in todayís news? 50 years ago tomorrow, just a few years after the Temple Israel community relocated from Bryden Road to Broad Street, Bob Dylan strode onto the stage at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island, plugged in an electric guitar and gave the music world a shock. Itís a story retold many times. Wearing a black leather jacket, the darling of the folk movement and singer of protest songs launched into a searing, distortion-filled, three-song electric set that brought boos from folk purists but thrilled others. Fifty years later, that event is considered one of the most important events in rock history, the high-voltage moment when Dylan broke away from folk and helped show fellow musicians the poetic possibilities of rock.

Temple Israel Building Update

Last Thursday was truly a remarkable chapter in Temple Israelís history. Close to 150 congregants turned out to discuss our future. The conversation was honest and open, insightful and emotional. Every voice was both heard and appreciated. It is truly a privilege to lead a community filled with so many who are passionate about our congregation. Thanks to all who were present and to those who shared their thoughts regarding the offer on our building and property. While we knew this to be true, it is inspiring to hear yet again how sacred Temple Israel is to each of us.
