Torah Question of the Week: When you bring a gift to someone or host them in your home for a holiday celebration (at least pre-COVID), how do you make it special? In this week’s portion, the Israelites are commanded to bring offerings to God – unblemished animals, unleavened bread made of their fine choice flour, oil and frankincense, their first fruits. They have specific instructions of what to bring and how to prepare their offerings to be pleasing to God. What do you do to ensure that the gifts you give others will be received the way you want them to be received? How do you ensure that what you are giving is what someone desires?
Kabbalat Shabbat will be on Friday at 8:00 p.m. and Shabbat morning services will be tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. I hope we will see you at one or the other or both!
