“Kehillah Kedoshah”

BTBJ’s Annual Theme for 5783

A Message from Rabbi Roni

In Leviticus 19:1, God says to Moses “k’doshim ti’hiyu ki kadosh ani Adonai eloheichem—You shall be holy, for I, the Lord your God am holy.” To be holy is to be set apart, made special and sanctified. This can be true of an object, of a person, and, of course, it is true of God. Holiness can also define a community, and I believe this is true of our BTBJ community.

When I envision our future here at BTBJ, I am inspired by this kehillah kedosha, this community imbued with sacred purpose, that has been so carefully nurtured here over the years.  This legacy of community focus inspires me to imagine a future even more deeply and intentionally dedicated to relationships cultivated panim el panim – face to face, heart to heart and soul to soul. This year we will explore this concept of holiness, in general, and also the essential elements of this kehillah kedosha, in particular.
