"Season of Romance"

r

realm what little remains of
our energy, time and en-
thusiasm after a week of ex-
hausting competition, frantic
worldly activity and countless
demands. We have many
reasons why we and our fami-
ly cannot attend Sabbath ser-
vices, even though we
recognize that this should be
our time for communion with
the Almighty, for self-
renewal, for celebration of our
faith and for the serenity and
peace that Sabbath obser-
vance creats.
Judaism calls for our best —
not three days a year, not an
occasional meeting, not a
sporadic religious experience,
but constant devotion and
faithful participation.
Judaism will mean to us as
much as we give to it of our
spirit, loyalty and commit-

Shabbat Teruma:
Exodus 25:1-27:19,
Kings 5:26-6:13

ment, for these are the offer-
ings of highest value.
Second, the mishkan con-
tained an ark which was the
abode of the sacred. This
teaches that every life should
have a personal shrine — ho-
ly and inviolate — that is not
profaned by self-indulgence or
material pursuits. Every day
should have its sacred
moments: a time for prayer,
an opportunity for study, an
occasion of contemplation
when we see beyond the
urgencies of the present a vi-
sion of eternal values. We all
require such periods of sanc-
tity in which to find the
wisdom to appreciate- our
blessings and the strength to
bear our burdens.
Finally, religion cannot be
sustained by force and coer-
cion. The biblical word which
gives this sedra its name is
terumah — the contribution
made because of an inner con-
viction, not an external com-
r pulsion. The sanctuaries of
Jewish life — synagogues and
temples, schools and
seminaries, homes for the ag-
ed, hospitals and communal
agencies — were established
by terumah, the offering of
the heart. The rebuilding of
Eretz Yisrael and the
redemption of our people in
our time has been made possi-
ble by the voluntary, uncoerc-
ed will of Jews living in a free
society who identified with
their brethren in faithfulness

and love.
The sanctuaries of Jewish
life will continue to thrive
and survive because of this
voluntary spirit that
animates our people. We are
Jews because we want to be,
not because we have to be.

Let the ideals of the
mishkan guide us as they did
our ancestors in their journey
to the land of promise. In that
way, we shall merit the fulfill-
ment of the divine promise
stated to Moses: "Let them
make Me a Sanctuary, that I
may dwell among them." In
building that which is holy,
we make it possible for God to
dwell in our midst.
