RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL: VETERAN'S DAY INVOCATION: HILTON HEAD ISLAND: PRINCETON CLUB

RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL: VETERAN'S DAY INVOCATION: HILTON HEAD ISLAND: PRINCETON CLUB
 

Princeton Veterans' Day Luncheon Celebration: Friday November 6, 2015,

12:30 PM, Sea Pines Country Club

INVOCATION AND BENEDICTION

Rabbi Dr Arthur Segal, Hilton Head Island, SC

 

Good Afternoon beloved Friends:

Dear Eternal Source of All: We gather together today to honor, and to learn from, the experiences of this esteemed panel of veterans. This wisdom was gained during their time in service, for our great nation, during the Second World War.  

 

We thank you, dear God, for bringing them,  and others from this Greatest Generation, and all veterans, home safely , and to Old Nassau.

 

We show honor and thanks, before you Almighty One, to those who sacrificed during times of war, in order that we might have liberty and freedom and security. We ask You, Heavenly Parent, to bless  all Veterans, both living and dead, who fought on the land, in the air, and on the seas. We ask for blessings as well, for the men and women, in labor and industry, who provided the machinery and weapons for this great battle called World War Two. Let us not forget those who served in all actions, in defense of our freedom, liberty, democracy, and American way of life. 

 

Oh Blessed One: Rekindle within us a flame of selfless, unwavering devotion to duty, that we may never be found wanting, in those qualities of spirit and mind. These are necessary to preserve our homes, our communities, and the peace of our Nation. Keep our memories alive with GRATITUDE, and our gratitude alive with our FAITHFULNESS to the principles which made our Nation great.   Grant, we pray, joy and fulfillment, to those Veterans and their families still living.  And for those who are at rest, grant Your infinite peace.

 

For all our efforts to say "thanks", and all our commitment to help our veterans recover their lives once they return , in the end we cannot do nearly enough. No governmental service, can repay all that they have lost. No holiday in their honor, can make up for the years lost, the innocence lost, the loves, limbs and lives lost. We cannot do enough. "Thank you" is too easy and too slight a return.

 

But we can pray for our veterans. We can ask God to make up the balance, to cover the debts we as a society can never make up. We can pray and ask for blessings beyond our human treasure. 

 

God, we thank you for commissioning men and women in the defense of freedom. We honor those who protect us, in many cases laying down their lives, that we might live free to pursue our own destiny. Every soldier takes an oath knowing they may be called upon to pay the ultimate sacrifice. Lord, we cannot repay this gift they give us. For those who have suffered, as a result of their sacrifice, we ask for divine healing, favor, and peace. Lift from them the cares and burdens of violence. When they return home, give them opportunities to fulfill their own potentials and dreams. Open doors for them, even when some doors are closed. Dear God, please bless our veterans.

 

Eternal God, you alone rule the destinies of nations.   You have deemed that all humans should live together in peace. Peace is the channel, though with all of your benevolence flows to us. Without peace, we cannot enjoy life to its fullest.  Help us honor our veterans by working toward a time when nations will not lift up sword against nation, and neither will humans wage war any more. Help us learn to love peace, and pursue peace, with even greater resolve and resources, that we use to pursue war.

 Oh Maker of Peace in the heavens, make peace for the United States of America, and the entire world, and let us say Amen.

 

Blessed are you Lord our God, king of the universe, Who brings forth bread from the earth. And let us say Amen. May God bless and keep all of us, and may God continue to bless and keep America. Thank you.

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.

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.
