sonal and familial. We are
tempted to ignore and neglect
the Sabbath day that provides
us with the experience of
renewal with the Jewish
tradition. We know the Sab-
bath brings us peace and
serenity, but somehow this
seventh day is not for many of
us a time that represents the
most significant and valued
event in the weekly calendar
of our life. Let us offer
Judaism our best.

Second the tabernacle must
contain an ark that encloses
that which is sacred. Every
life should have a holy and in-
violate center: sacred ex-
periences, moments of
reverence, times of sanctity.
We live in a tumultuous world
that constantly intrudes on
our privacy, a world in which
it is easy to lose our bearings.
Each of us needs an ark, a
place, a time, a moment in
which we can hear the still,
small voice of the spirit. We
require a daily opportunity
for prayer, study and con-
templation. It is within that
ark that we are enabled to
cope with crisis and sadness
and also with joy and
triumph.
Third, the material offered
was to be given freely and
gladly, not under duress or
compulsion. How is religion
truly sustained and advanc-
ed? Not by force or formal
obligation. Religion is
preserved and transmitted by
a loyalty freely given, by a
chosen identification with
Judaism.
Unlike other countries of
Jewish settlement in the pre-
modern world, in the free and
open society of America, the
religious affiliation of Jews
is not forced or demanded.
Synagogues are not main-
tained by the government or
any formally designated
authority. The whole
framework of Jewish ex-
istence in America is volun-
tary, and this gives it great
meaning, depth and moral
force.
What preserves the
elaborate structure of our
synagogal, organizational
and communal life? What
sustains our institutions and
agencies? The answer is
found in the volunteers who
give of their time and energy
and substance, who serve in
positions of leadership, who
translate programs into
reality.
Ultimately, what nurtures
Jewish life are the masses of
Jews who respond willingly
with their commitment to
build and maintain
synagogues; to strengthen
the well-being of the Jewish
people; to support organiza-
tions and institutions,

seminaries and movements.
It is that spirit of sharing, ser-
vice and loyalty that
preserves and enlarges our
community and its institu-
tions. In the words of the
sages, Rachman Liba Baey,
God seeks the heart, whose
willingness, faithfulness and
devotion make possible the
fulfillment of man's highest
vision.
