Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Shoftim.

Shavua tov — a good new week to you.

If you’re interested in Jewish teachings about the solar eclipse, here’s a wonderful compilation of blessings, teachings, and other materials assembled by my friend and colleague Rabbi Riqi Kosovske: Jewish Solar Eclipse Resources.

The new month of Elul begins tomorrow. Four short weeks until Rosh Hashanah: time to shift our inner discernment work into higher gear. If you’d like to buy or borrow a copy of See Me: Elul Poems to enrich your experience of this special month, drop by my office (I’m in on Monday and Friday this week).

Join us on  Shabbat morning at 9:30am for Shabbat morning services led by Rabbi Rachel.

This week we’re reading Shoftim. If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are a few:

And here are commentaries from the Union for Reform Judaism:  Shoftim at the URJ.

Blessings to all,

Rabbi Rachel
