As I become president of Temple Beth Sholom, I find myself focused on the importance of continuity and "community".
As I write this column, about a third of the Major League Baseball season has passed. For Yankees fans, though, the season seems to be just starting. Sure, the Yankees are 30-31, trailing the Red Sox by 9.5 games, but we’re not worried. (Of course, by the time you read this; we might be worried then.)
There’s a saying that: "Those who love Kosher sausage and obey the law should not watch either being made." I respectfully disagree. In my view, there is a lot to be said for understanding the process by which things are created. Finished products and end results rarely tell the whole story.
