Rabbi's Message

Rabbi Galperin became the rabbi at Congregation Shaarey Zedek in June, 2009.  He brings to our synagogue the youthful vigour and passionate beliefs of the Chabad movement.  Rabbi Galperin is available to officiate at weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, funerals and other life events.

Rosh Hashanah – More than just a New Year

Throughout the year, the Jewish calendar is filled with Holidays commemorating key historic spiritual and physical milestones in Jewish history. Passover recalls our flight from Egypt, Shavuot receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai, Purim the saving of the Jewish nation. One might wonder as Rosh Hashanah approaches, what happening, what key event in Jewish history the Days of Awe celebrate?

The Talmud tells us that Rosh Hashanah is the anniversary of, not the first day of creation, but rather the sixth, the day of creation that brought us Adam -- Mankind. It is poignant that it does not celebrate the creation of the physical world, which actually occurred five days earlier.
