Shavua tov, moadim l’simcha, looking forward to Shabbat Shemini!

Shavua tov — a good new week to you!

And: moadim l’simcha — wishing you a festival of rejoicing on these days of Pesach!

Monday is the seventh day of Pesach, the day when tradition says we crossed the sea. (For more on this, see: The seventh day: crossing the sea.) Join us at 10am for a short meditative and poetic service with Yizkor led by Rabbi Pam Wax, a chance to remember our beloved dead.

Also join us on  Shabbat morning at 9:30am for Shabbat morning services. This week we’re reading Shemini. If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are a few:

 

And here are commentaries from the URJ: Shmini at the URJ.

Wishing everyone a sweet and liberating continuation of Pesach —

Rabbi Rachel
