Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Masei.

Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,

Shavua tov / a good week to you!

This week we’re reading the Torah portion called Masei in the book of Numbers. 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. If you would like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are some which Rabbi Rachel has shared over the years:

And here’s a link to the Union for Reform Judaism’s page for this Torah portion, which contains several different Reform commentaries:

This Shabbat, our shaliach tzibbur (prayer leader) for morning services will be Rabbi Pam Wax. We extend a hearty thank you in advance to this week’s service host. 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!
