Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,
Shavua tov / a good week to all! Before we get to Shabbat information, here is a link to a post on my personal blog containing two prayers for voting, one written by Rabbi Sami Barth and the other written by Rabbi David Seidenberg. Feel free to print those out and take them with you to the polls tomorrow.
Join us on Shabbat morning at 9:30am for Shabbat morning services. This week we’re reading parashat Lech-Lecha, the third portion in the Torah. If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are a few:
- 2006: Going forth into something new
- 2008: First step [Torah poem]
- 2010: On going forth
- 2013: Becoming Avraham: names and transformation in Lech-Lecha
- 2014: The One Who Sees Me
- 2014: On boldly going: Lech Lecha and Star Trek
And here are commentaries from the URJ: Lech L’cha 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.
Blessings to all,
