Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Yitro.

Shavua tov – a good week to you!

This week we’re reading the Torah portion known as Yitro (Jethro) in the book of Shemot (Exodus.)

This coming Shabbat morning, February 7, services will be led by Rabbi Rachel — followed by our special Tu BiShvat seder, celebrating the New Year of the Trees with stories, poems, songs, learning about the four seasons and four worlds, and eating symbolic tree fruits and nuts in celebration. This year our seder will also feature Jewish environmental teachings and stories relating to the shmita (Sabbatical) year from Maggid David Arfa. RSVP to the office by Wednesday, please!

Many thanks to our shamashim, the members who host our Shabbat services each week. If you would like to join that group, please contact Pattie Lipman.

We hope to see you soon at CBI!
