Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,
Shavua tov / a good week to you! This week we’re reading parashat Ki Tisa. The name of the Torah portion is a hyperlink; click on it to be taken to the Torah portion in English if you want to read the portion before coming to Shabbat services.
Traditionally, we spend each week studying a new Torah portion, and then read from that portion on Shabbat, the culmination of the week, before beginning a new portion on Sunday again. If you would like to read some commentaries on the Torah portion, here are some which Rabbi Rachel has shared over the years:
- 2006: A mishkan in time
- 2008: The people, the calf, and Moshe
- 2009: Re-entry [Torah poem]
- 2011: God’s afterimage, and letting our light shine
- 2011: The other side of the story [Torah poem]
We extend a hearty thank you in advance to this week’s service hosts, Bob and Barbara Bashevkin. 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!
We hope to see you soon at CBI. Have a great week!
