  1. Hi Rabbi- I was fortunate enough to read your sermon which mentioned the miraculous performance by Pires of a Mozart concerto.
    Even an old died in the wool atheist can be moved by a proper sermon given by a Rabbi with a lot of heart.
    I did want to call your attention to the proper designation of the piece. It’s the K. 466. K is for Ludwig von Koechel, I think that’s the right spelling, an old cataloguer of Mozart’s works. Not 467. And not number 466, he didn’t write that many.
    The miracle of her performance is like the miracle of creation, in its accuracy, it’s precision, this, not that. The precarious miracle of the Higgs field, which even with it’s exquisite balance, could come shivering apocalyptically down into chaos at any and every moment. ” Every hair, is hair of the head, numbered.” Hopkins.
    So, anyway, the right detail for you to access the next time you reach out with your beautiful thoughts and speech.
