Torah Question of the Week: What do you do when you learn you have a friend in need? Do you feel obligated to help? In what way? In this week’s Torah portion, we are told that even though there should not be any needy people because of God’s blessings, if we see a needy person, we must open our hearts and hands and lend them what they need. How do you help while giving the person the opportunity to retain their dignity?
Shabbat services tonight are at 7:30 following the Annual Barbecue and online on Zoom. To come in person, you must register at tinyurl.com/TBAY-Shabbat. You do not need to register again if you have already registered for the barbecue. To come online, just use the Zoom link in the Shabbat Preview. Shabbat morning services will be tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. and currently remain only online. I hope we will see you at one or the other or both!
