Rabbi Isaac Sassoon

In the beginnning...

Bereshith 1:1

“For the Torah and Israel that are called [at Prv. 8:22; Jer. 2:3] beginnings "– The idea that the world was created for humankind-recurs in numerous aggadot... The key is to be found in the Mishan (San., 4:5) "therefore everybody is obligated to say the world was created for me." In contemplating his great potential, explains Rashi, a person will say to himself, "Seeing that I am worth the world, let me not wreck it all through sin." Israel's sense of noblesse oblige can only be intesnified by the knowledge that the Torah was entrusted to them.

There is something new in Lake County!
Jews have come together to celebrate and create their own place, their own community in the Tri-City area. What is so important? Why are people so excited? Here is what a few of them have said:

The existence of the Traditional Congregation of Mount Dora is important to me because it ensures the continued strength of our area as it signifies diversity and vibrancy, critical components of every healthy community.
Carole Warshaw-

I appreciate having a synagogue to attend that is located within the area that I live. This synagogue has helped to uncover a Jewish community in this area that I didn't know existed.
-Tiffany Kapner

I am grateful for all the synagogue does to keep Judaism alive and well in Lake County.
-Pam Singer

A synagogue is the foundation for a Jewish community, as a worship home, a place to share joys and troubles and find steady support. This will also be a place to educate our children to continue Jewish heritage.
