Listening to Our Jewish Stories

A reflection on the 2-Day Summer Institute by Rabbi Seth Adelson of Temple Israel of Great NeckI was so inspired by the sessions that we had with Ron Wolfson that I spoke about them on Shabbat morning.  Here is a link to my blog post.

After I told my own story as an introduction, I asked the ~150 congregants in attendance to partner up with people they did not know, and speak for 3 minutes each about their own Jewish stories. It seemed that most did so.

Also, for most of the service, I stood in the back of the sanctuary and greeted people as they came in. Many people were surprised, and many appreciated the personal welcome.
