Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Emor

Shavua tov – a  good week to you! Join us this coming Shabbat morning for services led by Rabbi Lori Shaller. Rabbi Lori writes:

I am looking forward to being back with the CBI community on Shabbat morning, May 21.  I will once again lead a contemplative service with movement.  Please bring your yoga mat if you have one, and wear clothes in which you will be comfortable to move.  If it’s warm enough and people agree, we will pray outdoors.   What you can expect:  freedom to move in any way that makes sense to you and that feels good in your body, plus some suggestions for movement; chant; a contemplative approach to the parshah; Amidah and Mourners Kaddish.  I look forward to praying with you.

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

As we move from Pesach to Shavuot, we enter deeper into the journey of counting the Omer — the days which connect our festival of liberation with our festival of revelation.

Don’t forget to register for the Shavuot retreat at Isabella Freedman! As members of an ALEPH Network community we receive a substantial discount; include the registration code VELVETEEN and you’ll get a $150 discount on that retreat.

Blessings to all,

Rabbi Rachel
