Thank You Lincoln Square Synagogue

Nov 24th, 2009 by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg in Reflections & Observations
“Hey! Weinberg! Where have you been? Don’t you know that you have to post at least twice a day for a successful blog?” Good questions. I’ve been busy. (See Busy-itis)

As The Foundation Stone grows, I receive increasing emails and calls every day. Since I have non-profit flowing through my blood, (we are filing all sorts of paperwork with the IRS), I don’t think in terms of money and cost effectiveness.

How did I do it when I was a pulpit rabbi? I answered and responded just as many calls each day, met with people, prepared and taught classes, visited the sick and lonely, performed funerals, raised funds for the synagogue, and even had time to learn every day. All that when I had young children with whom I spent at least two hours of uninterrupted time every day.

How was I able to manage all those things then without feeling overwhelmed? Simple: I was paid a salary by my congregation. The members made sure that I did not have to worry about money, health insurance, or tuition. It was the synagogue that provided a rabbi for all the callers and seekers, many of whom were not members and did not pay dues to the Shul.

So, thank you LSS. Thank you for giving me the means to do all those things, and thank you on behalf of all those people I would not have been able to help if not for you.
