Yom Kippur 5784: Hold The Center
September 26, 2023
Rabbi Gordon's sermon for Yom Kippur 5784 (2023): My yoga teacher says that there’s no such thing as being perfectly balanced. She says there’s always movement; when we’re standing on one leg, we lose our balance and find it again, over and over. There’s no rigid “I’m balanced and that’s the end of it.” We wobble about. And that’s a healthy adjustment to changing circumstances. So I’m not going to tell you where the center is, because I can’t: it changes. But I am going to remind you how to find it. We have Jewish spiritual technology — and I don’t mean Zoom — which helps us keep our balance and guides us back to the center.
