From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

Noach was a tzadik. In a world that was completely corrupt, he was able to maintain his righteousness. As the verse testifies - נֹחַ אִישׁ צַדִּיק תָּמִים הָיָה בְּדֹרֹתָיו – Noach was a righteous man; he was the pure one of his generation.

 

Yet, the prophet Yeshaya (54:9) refers to the flood as “the waters of Noach”, implying that he was responsible for the deluge. Why would the prophet paint Noach in such a negative light?

 

The Zohar explains that Noach should have prayed for the generation. He should have pleaded with Hashem to spare them from utter destruction. Since he did not, the calamity was ascribed to him.

 

The Tiferes Shlomo (Shlomo Hakohen Rabinowicz (1801 –1866) asks: “If Noach was so enlightened, why didn’t he implore Hashem to be merciful?”

 

He answers: Noach was a truly humble man. Humility was his leading quality. But Noach over extended his sense of humility. He reasoned, "Who am I that Hashem should be affected by my prayers. Can one small voice of protest be effective especially when Hashem has already sent out his decree. Who am I to reverse His decision?"

 

As logical as Noach's thoughts seemed, the truth is that he should have not thought this way when talking to Hashem. He should have understood that Hashem gives the righteous the power to redirect the course of history. Avraham knew this when he pleaded for the people of Sodom. Moshe knew this when he interceded on behalf of the Jewish people after the sin of the golden calf. Because Noach did not pray for his generation, the flood was attributed to him.

We all must know that, on some level, each of us are given the power to potentially effect the world with our prayers  - even in the most desperate situations our prayers can heal, protect and nurture. Let us never forget the power of our prayers!

BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

Next week we begin the Yomin Noraim – the Days of Awe. On Rosh Hashanah our fate for the coming year will be decided. What can we do to assure a favorable decision? The following is a story I heard from Rabbi Elimelech Biderman.

 

Someone once asked Reb Avigdor Miller zt’l, “What can I do to be found righteous in the judgement of Rosh Hashanah?”

The Rav answered, “Smile.”

 

The man didn’t understand. How will smiling help him get a good judgement? Reb Avigdor Miller said, “You think that since I am an old man, I didn’t understand your question?”

“Let me explain with a parable: After reviewing the balance sheets of his large store, the owner reached the conclusion that he had to lay off a number of his workers. A consultant advised him, ‘There is one worker you should not lay off. He is happy, friendly and he greets everyone with a smile. People come into the store just because of him. He is an asset not worth losing.’”

 

Reb Avigdor Miller explained: “On Rosh Hashanah Hashem reviews what is happening in the world and He reaches the conclusion that some people need to be “laid off” and returned to heaven. However, someone who brings joy to others, Hashem will say that it is worth keeping him in the world, for the sake of others. He is an asset not worth losing.”

“Now do you understand why smiling is a good counsel to receive a positive judgement on Rosh Hashanah?”

 

Good Shabbos and may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life for the coming year!

BACH Weekly Newsletter - How To Give Thanks

09/07/2017 11:07:18 PM

Sep7

BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

This week’s parsha begins with the bringing of Bikurim – the 1st fruits –to the Temple. A string would be placed on the first buds. And before we partook in the bounty we harvested, we would go to Jerusalem and offer thanks to the Almighty for these first fruits.

But instead of a simple “thank you”, we are instructed to recount our national history – from Yaakov fleeing his evil father-in-law through Hashem’s miraculous redemption of the nation from Egypt and our coming to the land of Israel.

 

And you shall call out and say before the Lord, your God, "An Aramean - [Lavan - sought to] destroy my forefather, and he went down to Egypt and sojourned there with a small number of people, and there, he became a great, mighty, and numerous nation . . . (Devarim 26:5). How is this a form of thanks?

 

The answer is that when we speak of where we come from and who we are, we are connecting ourselves to more than just a common ancestry. We are a united nation because we share a sacred mission. We are the people of the covenant, singled out by Hashem – dedicated to principles of truth, compassion, faith and modesty.

This is the greatest way for us to thank Hashem.

 

Thank you Hashem for the bountiful crops that will sustain me in my pursuit of taking my place in the unfolding of our national history.

 

After the destruction of the Temple, the Rabbis included this declaration of  Bikurim in the Haggadah.   We tell the story to our children at the Pesach Seder. We thank Hashem His protection and light. And we acknowledge and rejoice in the sacred mission we are a part of. We try our best to gently and sweetly draw our children into the covenant.

How appropriate a message for the coming of Rosh Hashanah.

 May Hashem grant us life for the coming year so that we can powerfully and joyfully fulfill our unique part in our national story.

 

Good Shabbos

BACH Weekly Newsletter - Let Us Feel the Pain

08/31/2017 09:28:08 PM

Aug31

BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

For those of us in Long Beach, the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Texas hits close to home. We can understand their pain and anguish in a very real way. I encourage everyone to reach out to the various organizations in our area that are bringing food and supplies to our brethren in the Houston area.

 

The sea is G-d’s world. Mankind skims along its surface. The world beneath, for the most part, remains an unfathomable mystery.

 

In the Torah, water, as reflected in the mikva, is the source of purity and rebirth. Conversely, water is the choice means of Hashem to exact judgement. The flood of Noach and the drowning of the Egyptian soldiers are prime examples.

 

The images of the destruction in Texas are heart wrenching. The heavens are being used harshly.

 

Let our hearts feel the pain of those affected.

Let our hands reach out to help.

Let our mouths cry out to Hashem to stop the waters and repair the wounds.

And may the healing energy of the month of Elul and the High Holidays neutralize power of Divine judgement and replace it with an outpouring of mercy from above.

 

Good Shabbos

let's help houston

There are many different organizations coordinating relief efforts for Houston.  Here are just a few:

 

Jewish Federation Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

 

LBNY-SandySurvivorsToHelpHarvey

 

Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

 

OU-RCA Campaign

 

AND last but not least - the LBJE Houston Relief Fund - where $10 for every LBJE ticket purchased at the 25% off price of $75 is donated to Houston Relief
