Shavua tov – a good week to you — and chag sameach (a joyous festival): it’s Sukkot! This coming Shabbat services will be led by Rabbi Rachel, and we’ll read the Torah reading for Shabbat when it falls during the intermediate days of Sukkot.
If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion and on this festival, some links follow:
- 2013: Cloud of glory: a d’var Torah for chol ha-moed (the intermediate days of) Sukkot
- 2013: Every Life is a Sukkah
- 2015: Sitting with sorrow in the sukkah
All are also welcome to join us at 5:30pm on Friday evening for our annual Shabbat / Sukkot potluck in the sukkah (if it rains, we’ll dine indoors) which will be followed by an optional sleepover in the sukkah — please RSVP for both so we know how many people to expect.
