Shabbat Shalom: Mishpatim – Shabbat Sh’kalim

Posted on February 12, 2021

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Do you feel that restitution is always warranted? Do you feel a punishment should fit the crime? In this week’s Torah portion is the famous, “eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth” law. Our sages decide this referred to monetary compensation. How do you think restitution should be made for the wrongs we inflict upon other people?

I hope we will see you for our special Shabbat in honor of Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion month (with the other Union County synagogues) tonight at 6:00  p.m. or Shabbat morning services tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. or both!

Shabbat Shalom!
