Hashkama Minyan - Rabbi Blanchard's Blurb
  • Is there anything spiritual in law? Clearly, the Hebrew Bible [TaNaCH] thinks so. One meaning of encountering the Divine is expressed in teaching through law/rules. Of course, there is more --narrative, poetry, theology, even history and cosmology. But, the Sinai encounter includes , even focuses its concern on, how G-d wants people to live/act/behave both individually and as groups. 
  • The Jewish system of law  [halakha] , while extensive ,is not however totalitarian and leaves most of our time  for us to structure. And, of course, since laws do not interpret or apply themselves, our personal lives, and the life of our communities, are relatively diverse. This makes living a life governed by Divine law complicated. 
  • The spiritual life, Jewish or otherwise, then finds its expression in part in law [rules and  rituals]. Among all the many possibilities for how humans should live, spiritual vision partially marks out a conception of those  to be sought out and those to be avoided. In short, our spiritual commitment to [law] action must be guided by/rooted in our understanding of our highest values. Once again: this makes living a life governed by Divine law complicated. 
  • Reflections of Exodus 20:22-23:19
