Finding Our Lens: A Shabbat Message from Rabbi Dr. Kobrin

One of the scariest scenes in recent horror movies occurred in last year’s It, in a scene lifted directly from Stephen King’s classic 1986 novel (sorry, no links: not safe for kids — or even for some adults).

The Impostor Syndrome: A Shabbat Message From Rabbi Dr. Kobrin

My first year as a teacher I kept waiting for everyone – my students, their parents, my principal – to realize that I had fooled them all; I actually had no idea what I was doing. I know people who had similar feelings when they first became parents: we’re just faking this, and one day we’ll get caught and they’ll take this baby away from us.

They Also Serve: A Shabbat and Purim Message from Rabbi Dr. Kobrin

Running up the FDR drive in a race this past Sunday, I felt particular gratitude for a group of people who are often taken for granted: the volunteers. At a New York Road Runners race, volunteers staff tables and medical tents to give out snacks and drinks and to offer first aid. It’s cold, boring and often thankless work; Mr. Sigal and his family have volunteered at races and he’s told me how it can feel. Waiting on the sidelines can be hard.
