A Message from Rabbi ArnowRabbi Noah Arnow - Senior RabbiRabbiArnow@kolrinahstl.orgThe Right QuestionsWhat are the right questions to ask achild (or several children), with steps,person you see at shul? Here are somewith the elevator, with a walker, with asuggestions:stroller, with books, with anything—ask,ΓHowÎare you feeling today?”“How can I help?”to services on a Saturday morning orΓForÎwhom are you saying Kaddish?”Don’t let people sit by themselves—ΓMyÎname is . What’s yourat shul on Friday night or Saturdayname?”ΓHowÎcan I help?”ΓCouldÎI sit next to you?” or “Wouldyou like to come sit next to me?”ΓCanÎI introduce you to ?”If someone has been sick, they may notfeel like going into their whole medicalhistory. But one can safely ask, “Howare you feeling today?”When someone is saying Kaddish,Imagine if every single time you camemorning, at minyan, at Kiddush, or ata program. Ask them—invite them tosit with you, or plop yourself down nextto them, asking if it’s alright. They maywant a little solitude, but give themthe option of some company. And thisdoesn’t need to be just new people whoyou’ve never seen. This is a kind thingto do for acquaintances too. No onea holiday, you said every single oneof these things to a different person.How many more people would youmeet? How warmly would people feelwelcomed? If you ask all six questionsin a single Shabbat, let me know—I’llpublicly appreciate you from the bimaor in writing, anonymously or not—your choosing. Do it every week, andyou’ll be a hero, a tzadeek (saint) ofwelcoming and kindness.should sit alone unless they say theywant to be alone.if you don’t know for whom they aresaying Kaddish, it’s just about alwaysappropriate to ask, “For whom are yousaying Kaddish?” You can also followup with, “Tell me something about yourloved one.”If there’s someone you don’t know,You don’t have to be theonly person to talk tosomeone you don’t knowthat you’re just meetingfor the first time.don’t pretend—just introduce yourselfjob to meet people. But please don’task people if they are new—becauseif they’ve been coming for a year, andkeep getting asked if they’re new, it canQ: Why aren't the Fast of Tammuzand Tisha B'Av on their true Hebrewand ask their name. and don’t assumeit’s someone else’s job—it’s everyone’sIn the Calendar ."What is This"?You don’t have to be the only personto talk to someone you don’t knowthat you’re just meeting for the firsttime. Introduce them to others. And thedates (17th of Tammuz & 9th of Av)?A: That is because the only fast daythat can occur on Shabbat is YomKippur.people to whom you introduce them canQ: What is Tu B'Av on July 27?be like them—another mother of youngA: It isn't a typo, this is an ancientchildren, for example, or someone notJewish holiday that has been revivedlike them.
