Welcome 

Since 1922, Congregation B’nai Israel (CBI) located in Monmouth County, has served as a religious, cultural and educational synagogue for Jewish residents of the greater Red Bank area.

E-Torah

“God Aches for Us”

This week’s Torah portion, Tazria-Metzora speaks of the plague of tzaraat that can make its appearance both on human beings and the walls of homes.  This week the plague of violence made its horrific appearance on the campus of Virginia Tech.  At such times, people often ask, “Where is God?”  For me, one consoling answer comes in the rabbinic treatise Mishna Sanhedrin, chapter 5.  The sages declare that when human beings ache with pain, God aches with pain with us “It is My own head that aches, it is My own arm that aches” when humans ache.  God gave us free will to do good or ill, but when we suffer, God suffers with us.  We are not alone in our sorrow.

Shabbat Shalom

Rabbi Douglas Sagal
