Shavua tov – a good week to you!
This week we’re reading the Torah portion known as Miketz, continuing the Joseph story. This week we’ll also enter into the Festival of Lights, which begins tomorrow night. (More about that soon.)
Join us on Friday evening at 5:30pm for our celebration of Shabbat Chanukah and the winter solstice! We’ll dine on a vegetarian/dairy potluck feast (please bring a dish to share — potato latkes will be provided), sing some Chanukah songs, bless the many candles, and enjoy live music from the Wholesale Klezmer band. Please RSVP to the office so we know how many potatoes to peel.
If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, some links follow:
- 2006: The treasure of teshuvah
- 2008: Unrecognizable [Torah poem]
- 2012: S’fat Emet on Chanukah and on light
- 2012: On abundance and dreams
And here’s the URJ’s compilation of commentaries on this week’s Torah portion: Mikeitz | Reform Judaism.
Thanks to Helene Armet for our home-baked challah, and thanks to our shamashim, the members who host our Shabbat services each week.
We hope to see you soon at CBI!
