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 Bamidbar.
If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are a few:
- 2006: Portable holiness
- 2007: Ways of counting
- 2008: Census [Torah poem]
- 2009: Head by head [Torah poem]
- 2011: Kedushat Levi on the census as sacred study
And here are commentaries from the URJ:
We are now in the final week of the Omer. During these seven weeks, we prepare ourselves to receive Torah anew.
For those who aren’t joining us at our Hudson Valley Shavuot Retreat, Rabbi Pam Wax is organizing a tikkun leyl Shavuot and will lead Shavuot morning services with Yizkor. Learn more: Two Ways to Celebrate Shavuot. And for our Hebrew school families, we’ll have From Egypt to Sinai: A Shavuot Family Adventure on May 21; I hope you’ll join us!
Blessings to all —
