Kavanah for the week of July 9th from Rabbi Yael Levy
Mindful of his own death, Moshe calls God by the new name: Infinite Spirits of all Flesh,
And asks who should follow in his wake.
Choose Joshua, the One answers, for the spirit is within him.
Let Joshua stand before the entire community as you lay your hands upon his shoulders.
Bestow upon Joshua your awareness, your gratitude, your humility.
This will ensure his voice will be heard and his teachings understood.
May we be mindful of the spirit that enlivens all creation.
And may gratitude, humility and awareness guide us as we bring our selves forward as leaders and guides.
