Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Bamidbar

Shavua tov — a good new week to all!

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

On Shabbat morning we’ll be reading from parashat Bamidbar. If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s parsha, here are a few:

Here’s Torah commentary at Builders Blog (a project of Bayit: Building Jewish), this week written by Rabbi Rachel and sketchnoted as always by Steve Silbert: Making Everyone Count.

And here are commentaries from the URJ on this week’s parsha:

We’re in the seventh week of the Omer, the week of malchut (which connotes sovereignty, “kingdom,” nobility, and also Shechinah, the indwelling, immanent divine Presence.) 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.

There will be a Tikkun Leyl Shavuot at CBI on June 8-9 led by Rabbi Pam Wax:

Please join us on Saturday, June 8 for our annual Tikkun Leil Shavuot, an evening of learning, discussing, singing, and eating, from 7pm-9:30pm. If you would like to teach, pose a question, lead a discussion, share a poem or a song, show us some art or a video, please email Rabbi Pam Wax at (She also wants to know if there are any other Shtisel fans out there – she’s considering using it in her teaching for that evening.) A great time is always had by all! Then, continue the journey on Sunday, June 9 at 10am for a Shavuot festival service with yizkor and the reading of the Ten Commandments.

May your Omer journey be meaningful and fruitful.

Hope to see you soon at CBI!
