A magical moment

IMG_0323-001Rabbi Harry did not disappoint those magic seekers who came to the synagogue last Sunday to hear about Magic and the Rabbinate.

He suggested that folk religion may offer life affirming ideas when classical beliefs and practices fail to offer solace. He explained that there are settings in which it is preferable to sing a niggun rather than recite a prayer or to hold a special object (amulet) rather than a siddur.
