Greetings from Rabbi Hershenson
between Hillel and Shammai that seems to go beyond all arguments. At the end of the day the BAT KOL, the divine voice, chimes in and says:
Eilu veilu divrei Elohim chayim - These and these are the words of the living God.
But, the law will be according to Hillel.
These and these are the words of the living God - Both Hillel and Shammai are correct in their assessments of the matter they are arguing. But for the sake of the community moving forward, one opinion will rule. The other opinion will remain in print and will be raised again and again in later arguments.
Dear Members & Friends,
Thank you for your vote of confidence, for the faith you have that I can lead our congregation. It is an honor to be selected as president of Temple Beth Tikvah.
The job of any president is to preside over an organization, to be its CEO, to "supervise, direct, and control the affairs of the Temple," per our bylaws. But I can't be a successful president without help from all of you.
In business and in other organizations, effective presidents and leaders are those that know how to recognize the strength in the people around them, to bring in the best people, and to delegate responsibility to them so they can get the job done.
