Shavua tov — a good new week to you!
Join us on Shabbat morning at 9:30am for Shabbat morning services led by Rabbi Rachel. The coming Shabbat is called “Shabbat Shachor” (the dark Shabbat) because it is the Shabbat immediately before Tisha b’Av, and our observance will reflect that theme — filtered through the joyous lens of Shabbat.
This week we’re reading D’varim. If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are a few:
Here’s a d’var Torah from my friend and colleague Rabbi David Evan Markus that connects this week’s Torah portion with next week’s observance of Tisha b’Av and with the great “turning” we do in our lives as the Days of Awe approach: It’s Your Turn.
And here are commentaries from the URJ: D’varim at the URJ.
Blessings to all,
