Shabbat Shalom: Ki Tavo

Posted on August 27, 2021

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: When you receive something wonderful, how do you share it? With whom do you share it? In this week’s Torah portion the Israelites are told that when they enter the land of Israel, they must take some of the first fruit they harvest and bring it to the priests at the temple, the place where God chooses to establish God’s name. This is their expression of gratitude to God for bringing them to that place. How do you express gratitude for something you receive? How can you acknowledge or thank the person or people who made it possible?

Our regular Shabbat services are at 8:00 tonight and are available both on Zoom and online. To come in person, you must register at To come online, just use the Zoom link in the Shabbat Preview.
