Shavua tov – a good week to you!
This week we’re reading parashat Yitro. (The name of the Torah portion there is a hyperlink; click on it to be taken to the Torah portion in English.)
This Shabbat, our shalich tzibbur (prayer leader) will be our own Rabbi Rachel. Her bio is available on our website. One new detail which is not yet in that bio: her next collection of poems, a volume of Jewish liturgical prayer, will be published in the new year by Ben Yehuda Press!
We extend a hearty thank you in advance to our service host Wendy Penner. If you would like to join the shamashim (“helpers”) who welcome people to our Shabbat services and who host our light kiddush afterwards, contact Pattie Lipman.
We also thank our member Helene Armet for the home-baked challah!
This Shabbat, instead of our usual kiddush and Torah study, we’ll hold a Tu BiShvat seder after services. Please RSVP to let the office know if you’re coming to that seder and potluck luncheon.
We hope to see you soon at CBI. Have a great week!
