Shavua tov – a good week to you! Join us this coming Shabbat morning for services led by Rabbi Rachel. This week will feature a contemplative chant-based Shabbat morning service. We will sing brief excerpts from our liturgy, letting each one soak into our hearts and souls. (Though everything else will be brief and distilled into its purest form, we will recite the Mourner’s Kaddish in fulltext form.)
This week we’re reading parashat Shemini from the book of Vayikra (Leviticus)
- 2006: Why innovative prayer isn’t strange fire
- 2007: Holiness, wildlife, keeping awake
- 2008: Vessel [Torah poem] and Brokenness and purity
- 2009: Clear [Torah poem]
- 2015: From trauma to healing
And here’s the URJ’s compilation of commentaries on this week’s Torah portion:Tzav at the URJ.
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.
