Shavua tov — a (belated) good new week to you!
Please join us on Saturday at 9:30am for Shabbat morning services. This week we’re reading from parashat Bereshit — the very first portion in the Torah!
If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s Torah portion, here are a few:
- 2006: Speaking from our soft places
- 2008: Postpartum [Torah poem]
- 2009: Likeness [Torah poem]
- 2012: Signs [Torah poem]
- 2013: Firmament / Tearing [Torah poem]
- 2016: Back to the beginning
Over at Builders Blog (a project of Bayit: Your Jewish Home, which counts both me and CBI Board member Steven Green among its founders) there’s a new weekly series of parshanut (Torah commentary) posts that just launched. Each week a different builder will explore the Torah portion through the lens of building a renewed Judaism. Here’s the first post in that series, by Rabbi David Markus (with fabulous sketchnotes by Steve Silbert):
And here are commentaries from the URJ:
Hope to see you soon at CBI!
