Shabbat Shalom: D’varim

Posted on July 16, 2021

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever been told it is time to move on? How did you react? Did you listen or did you struggle with it? In this week’s Torah portion, Moses recounts the two times when God told him that he and the Israelites had stayed long enough in one place – first around Mount Horeb and then around Mount Seir. They of course did as God had said. Do you take the advice of others when it is time to move on from what you are doing? Do you trust your own judgment on this?

Tonight is Shabbat in the Lot at the JCC in Scotch Plains! Usher in Shabbat outdoors with your Jewish community (weather permitting)! The service will be led by Rabbi Rubin and clergy from other Union County synagogues. Bring your own lawn chairs and dinner. Space is limited. Registration is required to come in person: The service will be available on Zoom. To join by Zoom, please register.

Shabbat morning services will be tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. (summer schedule) and currently remain only online. I hope we will see you at one or the other or both!

Remember, Tisha b’Av begins on Saturday night. Information on our Tisha B’Av services can be found in your Shabbat Preview email. We are jointly hosting services on Saturday night and Sunday morning with Ahavas Sholom. There is also an evening program with the Va’ad haRabbanim of Union County.

Shabbat Shalom!
