What is it that we need to sustain us as we go through this ordeal? Certainly we need the basics of survival. We need food and shelter and rest. We need to know what’s expected of us and what our limits are. And as we do our best, we need to pace our selves and allow enough time for self-care.

The coronavirus pandemic has presented us with unprecedented challenges. From time to time we find ourselves just blown back on our heels. We spend a great deal of energy just working to remain upright and regain our balance.

Sometimes we’re grateful and sometimes we complain

Good Evening Jewish Home Manhattan

Today is Wednesday, April 15.

Sometimes we’re grateful and sometimes we complain (or as we say in Yiddish, we kvetch)

There is a classic Jewish joke: two friends are eating at a familiar neighborhood restaurant and one says to the other, “You know, this place has really gone downhill. The food is terrible.” “Absolutely,” replies the other, “and such small portions.”

Good Morning Jewish Home – Manhattan

Today is Wednesday, April 15. On top of everything else, it’s Tax Day.

At The New Jewish Home, around NY City and State, and throughout America, we have more pressing issues to deal with of course. Yet, without fail, this day comes around each and every year.

None of us can do this alone

Good Evening Jewish Home Manhattan

One of the truths that has emerged from this crisis is something that we already knew. But now we know even more deeply. And that is that none of us can do this alone. We need friends. We need community. This is not a new insight.

Our colleagues inspire us with dedication and tenacity, faith and love

—Rabbi Jonathan Malamy, Director of Meaningful Life

Good Morning Jewish Home Manhattan

Today is Tuesday, April 14.

The world right now, and our community in particular, is living on a roller coaster.  

Up and Down. Up and Down. 

Sometimes we’re at the bottom, filled with sadness, wounded by what we’ve been through, depressed by what we see. 

Other times we are buoyed up by hope. We rally in the presence of the heroism and courage we see. Our colleagues inspire us with dedication and tenacity, faith and love — which is called forth in the face of challenge.

Seeing our way side-by-side with one another

Rabbi Jonathan Malamy, Director of Meaningful Life

Good evening Jewish Home Manhattan.

Today is Monday, April 13.

Sometimes it seems like things will never get back to how they used to be. That the way things are now is the way they always will be.

The good news is that this is not so. We will not live like this forever.  

The bad news is that we are living like this now. 

And so, as we face the challenges today, we need not pretend that they are not true, are not painful, are not frightening. They are. But we must also remember a similarly true though hidden fact — this reality is not permanent.  And we will — and we are — seeing our way to the other side, side-by-side with one another.

It is a Tempest

—Rabbi Jonathan Malamy, Director of Meaningful Life

Welcome to a new day and a new week.

The wind and the weather today seem to reflect a certain truth about our inner lives. It is a tempest. The heavens themselves seem to scream and cry.

And yet, even as the world reflects our inner distress, what I saw as I entered the building this morning was something utterly different. Hunched against the wind, step by step, moving forward toward and into the building — staff members on the frontlines of this crisis. Making their way into the building to provide care and support and love.

With open hearts, may love lift us up

—Rabbi Jonathan Malamy, Director of Meaningful Life

Good morning Jewish Home Manhattan.

Today is Friday, April 10.

In the Jewish calendar, today is the 2nd day of Passover.

In the Christian calendar, it is Good Friday.

These different holy days, of course, honor and celebrate different beliefs. But a truth that is embedded in each, is that out of the experience of hardship, and out of the losses (and sometimes the generosity) of sacrifice, may come meaning, purpose, and hope.
