TO ACT OR NOT TO ACT  

 

The Jewish world in the Diaspora is falling apart. If there is a Jewish partner in a marriage, there is a one in two chance that the other partner will not be Jewish. I have no problem with that if you don’t care. If it happens you will probably say – well I just want my son/daughter to be happy. 

 

The old world of the ghetto is no longer. Jews are spread out more than ever with ever decreasing chances of mixing with a wide number of Jews unless they make the effort to join organized religious or Zionist groups. If you choose not to join mainstream groups, then you are more or less alone anmd relying on chance meetings. Of course other groups do exist but we live in an age where people choose to join less and less. The solution is to ensure that the family grows up knowing other Jewish families so that the extended family is very large.

 

For parents and individuals the Jewish destiny is in your hands. Sitting in front of a computer will be the solution for a very small number; waiting for something to happen is not very promising; hoping that you will meet somebody at the next family gathering is a possibility but the same faces will be there; hoping that you will meet the right person on a blind date is always a possibility.  

 

The other alternative is to act – take your destiny in your own hands. That means as a parent making sure that your children know something about Judaism and mix with other Jews with a similar level of interest to yours. It means if you are a young person finding other Jews with similar interests.  Families have to make some effort to grow the extended Jewish family.

 

Meeting on a regular basis with a common purpose would seem to be the answer but how and what?  The best suggestion that I can some up with is the Good Shabbos Community. It is a smorgasbord of activities on a Friday night. The choice whether you do a lot or a ,little is yours. The choice whether you want to do something else altogether is yours alone.  I can only ask that you do something. 

 

ACTION RAISES YOUR CHANCES

OF ACHIEVING WHATEVER YOU DESIRE. 

INACTION WILL PRODUCE OUTCOMES RELYING ON CHANCE ALONE 

Enjoying a few minutes together on

 Friday nights may change your life forever

 

Six degrees of separation is slow

Six degrees of together is MUCH faster
