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 Hashana 5767



Rosh Hashana

In the Torah there is no mention of the term Rosh Hashana.  Rather, the Torah refers to the fact that in the seventh month there will be a "Yom Teruah".  The Aramaic translation by Onkelos uses the word "Yabbova" as a day of "Crying".  As a result, we have a strange event occur in chapter 8 of the book of Nechemia.  The people had returned from the captivity in Babylon and were now going to celebrate Rosh Hashana in Israel for the first time in seventy years.  The chapter tells us that the people began to cry until the Levites explained to them that the "Crying" refers to the sound of theShofar, and not the people.  Instead, they are told to go home and rejoice, which is what they did.
