Shavua tov – a good week to you!
This week we’re reading the Torah portion known as Korach in the book of Bamidbar (“In the Wilderness,” a.k.a. Numbers.)
If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, some links follow:
- 2006: The hubris of Korach
- 2007: Korach: fruitful tension between paradigms
- 2008: Bloom [Torah poem]
- 2009: Fruit [Torah poem]
- 2013: Korach, privilege, and striving for more
And here’s the URJ’s compilation of commentaries on this week’s Torah portion: Korach | URJ.
On Shabbat morning we’ll read from Korach. When we gather again on Shabbat afternoon to celebrate the bat mitzvah of Rose Gotlieb, we’ll move on to the following week’s Torah portion, so you’ll get an early preview of Chukat! (At mincha-time on Shabbat we stop reading the previous week’s portion and begin reading the next week’s portion.)
This coming Shabbat morning, services will be led by Rabbi Pam Wax; on Shabbat afternoon when we meet at 5pm, services will be led by Rabbi Rachel. 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!
