BLUFFTON SUN: JULY 2016: RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL: MODERN LESSONS FROM ANCIENT FAST

 

BLUFFTON SUN: JULY 2016: RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL:

MODERN LESSONS FROM ANCIENT FAST

 JULY 2016: BLUFFTON SUN :RABBI DR ARTHUR SEGAL

Shalom and greetings:

In our tour through the Jewish calendar this year, we arrive at July 24, the fast day of 17th Tammuz,  and the beginning of ''the three weeks'' ending with the fast day of Tisha B'Av,  August 14th.  {The 17this really on 7/23, but because Jews do not fast on Shabbat, it is commemorated on Sunday].  

Talmud Yerushalmi Ta'anit 4:5 teaches that five terrible things happened on Tammuz 17:

1. The tablets of the Ten Commandments were broken because the Israelites lost faith and worshiped the Golden Calf circa 1300 B.C.E.

2. The daily sacrifice was canceled as all animals had been eaten during  Jerusalem's  siege.

3. Jerusalem's wall was breached in 70 CE as Jews had hatred [sinat chinam] amongst each other. 

4. A Roman general burned the Torah.  

5. Hebrew King Meneshe set up an idol in the First Temple.

Most of us have seen Charlton Heston's portrayal of Moses smashing the Tablets. You probably won't be surprised to learn that the Talmud's different version.

Rabbi Shmuel  bar Nachman said: "The tablets were six handbreadths long and three broad. Moses was holding on to two handbreadths and God, was holding on to two of them and there was a space of two handbreadths in the middle. When the Israelites worshiped the golden calf, God wanted to grab them out of the hand of Moses. But Moses's hand was stronger and he seized them from Him." Rabbi Yochanan said: "The tablets wanted to fly, but Moses was holding on to them." Rabbi Nehemiah taught: "The writing itself flew off the tablets." (ibid).

Many of us smash The Tablets daily with our behaviors. Some treat the strangers among us, or even our fellows, without love. Many of us deny God, but curse Him when things do not go our way. While Traditional Jews are praying these three weeks for the restoration of the Temple and mourning its loss, I am praying for the return of civility and spirituality for all people. I am praying for the final dissolution of 'sinat chinam', hatred among us, either interpersonal, or sect versus sect. I am praying for the true establishment of loving our fellows as ourselves.

This is the modern lesson of Tammuz 17. Will you join me?

JEWISH WEDDINGS OFFICIATED BY RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL: TRADITIONAL, INTERFAITH, CO-OFFICIANT, DESTINATION

http://jewish.server272.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/262868_10150265476508494_113476883493_7846773_2284419_n.jpg

"One of the Joys of being a Rabbi," says Rabbi Arthur Segal," is working closely with the bride and groom and officiating at their wedding." He can do this with couples living near by or with couples having a destination wedding in the greater beautiful Hilton Head Island area.

Rabbi Arthur Segal helps develop a custom ceremony with the couple so that each word in the ceremony rings true to them. His ceremonies can range from the very traditional to what ever the couples desires. Rabbi opines that this is the couple's special day, and to treat each wedding as unique.

For those who are having an interfaith wedding, Rabbi takes special care to respect both traditions, again with total input from the couple. He will be pleased to co-officiate at weddings, using non-Trinitarian language.

Rabbi will work closely with the wedding planer and/or caterer to make sure the wedding is seamless, and the bride and groom can totally enjoy themselves on their special day.

Rabbi Arthur Segal is available, and actually prefers, to be at the rehearsal, to ensure all is going smoothly, and to get to know the bridal party, and family, before the actual wedding day.

For those that wish to have a Ketubah, rabbi will work closely to make sure everyone's name has correct calligraphy on the document, in English and Hebrew, so the signing ceremony is flawless.

For a beautiful gallery of Ketubahs go to JudaicConnection.com  (My couples receive a $15 shipping discount)

Rabbi Arthur Segal tries to limit his weddings to Hilton Head, SC, Bluffton, SC, Palmetto Bluff, SC, Savannah, GA, and Charleston, SC, but has been known to make himself available elsewhere, even out of the USA. He will also conduct weddings and recommitment ceremonies on cruise ships.

In keeping with Jewish ethics, if the couple resides in Rabbi Arthur Segal's town, Rabbi will ask, unless there are some special circumstances, if the couple has first asked the local pulpit rabbi to officiate.
