Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Vayikra.

Shavua tov – a good week to you! This week we’re reading the Torah portion known as Vayikra (“And God called”) — the first Torah portion in the new Biblical book by the same name, which we know in English as Leviticus.

And here’s the URJ’s compilation of commentaries on this week’s Torah portion: Vayikra | URJ.

This coming Shabbat morning, March 21, our davenen will be co-led by Rabbi Rachel and Rabbi David Markus of Temple Beth-El of City Island. Expect lots of music, harmony, and joy!

This Shabbat is also a special occasion — Rosh Chodesh Nisan, the new moon of the month which contains Passover — so we’ll also sing the psalms of Hallel. After services there will be a celebratory oneg / kiddush celebrating both Shabbat, and Rabbi Rachel’s birthday.

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!
