Shavua tov — a good new week to you.
Join us on Shabbat morning at 9:30am for Shabbat services led by Rabbi Jarah Greenfield. This week we’re reading from parashat Tazria-Metzora.
If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are a few:
- 2005: Tricky Torah: taharah and tumah
- 2006: Meeting impurity, and being changed
- 2007: Health — and connection with God
- 2008: Clean [Torah poem]
- 2009: Like God [Torah poem]
- 2012: Revisiting Tazria-Metzora, after death and after birth
- 2015: Becoming Real: Tazria-Metzora and Being Velveteen
- 2016: Letting your light shine
- 2017: Healing and second chances
And here are commentaries from the URJ:
We are now in the third week of the Omer, the week of tiferet (harmony and balance.) Here are 49 poems for the Omer. The 49 days of the Omer count lead us from second seder to Shavuot. During these seven weeks, we prepare ourselves to receive Torah anew. I hope you’ll join us at our Hudson Valley Shavuot Retreat on May 18-20 at the end of the Omer count — read all about it and register now!
Blessings to all —
