Shabbat Shalom: Balak

Posted on June 25, 2021

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever been tempted to do something you knew you weren’t supposed to do? How big would the reward have to be to override your instincts? In this week’s Torah portion, the sorcerer Bil’am at first declines to go to Moab to curse the Israelites, but eventually he is convinced. Ultimately, though, he is unable to curse them and blesses them instead. If you have ever allowed temptation to get to the best of you, what did you learn from the experience?

Tonight is our Pride Shabbat! Shabbat evening services going forward will be multi-access – both in-person and online on Zoom. To come in person, you must register at Zoom links will be in the Shabbat Preview. Shabbat morning services will be tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. and currently remain only online. I hope we will see you at one or the other or both!

Shabbat Shalom!
