Rabbi Forman will be on Sabbatical this summer from June 20-August 18, 2016.
Just as Shabbat arrives every seven days, similarly does a sabbatical year arrive every seven years. In the Book of Leviticus (Chapter 25) we are commanded to let the land rest every seven years. So, too, do some individuals take time during their careers to reflect, renew, and discover creative new ideas to enrich one's self and others.
Starting June 20th, I will be spending two months this summer doing just that. I will be attending the Kenyon Institute for a portion of that period at a writing seminar called Beyond Walls: Spiritual Writing at Kenyon for clergy of all faiths. And I will be finding time to write, read, and learn about new ways of connecting and communicating with all of you. I look forward to reconnecting with all of you after August 18th .
Please contact the office at 908-806- 2122 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays for any questions or concerns. In case of an emergency, please contact our president, Kim Turner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity for renewal.
Have a rewarding summer.
Rabbi Joe Forman
