Shavua tov — a good new week to you.
Join us on Shabbat morning at 9:30am for Shabbat services led by Rabbi Pam Wax. This week we’re reading from parashat Acharei Mot-Kedoshim.

- 2004: Rereading Leviticus 18:22
- 2006: Ways to redeem one problematic line
- 2008: Naked [Torah poem] and Returning to Mitzrayim (part of the Torah Queeries series at Mosaic / Keshet)
- 2008: Gevurah [Torah poem]

- 2017: Because [Torah poem] and Shabbat, renewal, and you
And here are commentaries from the URJ:
We are now in the fourth week of the Omer, the week of netzach (endurance) 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 —
