Shavua tov – a good week to you!
This week we’re reading the Torah portion known as Balak 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: On blessings and curses
- 2007: Prophetic (comedic) speech
- 2008: Balak [Torah poem]
- 2013: What we learn from Balaam about blessing
And here’s the URJ’s compilation of commentaries on this week’s Torah portion: Balak | URJ.
This coming Shabbat morning, services will be led by Rabbi Pam Wax. Please RSVP if you will be joining us, since she will be hosting a celebratory kiddush for Chaim’s birthday, and would like to know how much food to prepare.
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!
