The oldest, continually used blessing in the world is the Torah's "Priestly Blessing."  May God bless you [with bounty] and guard you.  May God's face radiate grace (of getting your needs met) upon you.  May God turn God's face to you [when you don't get what you need] so [you do not feel alone but meet God there and] God places peace within you.
The Rabbis stress that the person blessing is merely a "window" to letting God in, but in this Dvar Torah I question whether this isn't exactly what we wish to avoid -- letting God in.  We want to let us in!  We spend our time building a world of domestic familiarity and home, and build our children up with their accomplishments.  Transcendence runs absolutely against that:  it puts you in the context of the Eternal drama, not your own:  achievement, knowledge, and the cathedral of the self [we telling our hero stories] take a far second place in transcendence, where our ego is seen in its puniness, and we feel the calm of taking our place in the eternal dramas of humanity, nature, and experience.  Transcendence teaches gratitude for participation in the human journey, calm, perspective, and the movement toward shalom (contentment) in one's lot, rather than protection.  In this sermon, I ask how we lead our children to be prepared to encounter God, not us.

Description

In addition to explicating individual chapters of the Torah using traditional sources to apply directly to our daily lives, Rabbi Caine or "Rav Nadav" (as he is affectionately known) teaches on topics such as The Soul, Mysticism, Theology, Ethics, Comparative Religion, Science & Religion, and Psychology of Religion. Rav Nadav studied religion and philosophy at Princeton, Harvard, and Stanford Universities. An award winning teacher and Conservative rabbi, he now serves as senior rabbi at a congregation in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
