Shabbat Shalom: Va’eira

Posted on December 31, 2021

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever made a decision out of fear or anger? Have you realized it was a bad decision but were unable to change course? In this week’s portion, we have seven of the plagues on Egypt. After each plague, Pharaoh summons Moses and Aaron back and agrees to let the Israelites go worship God. But every time, Pharaoh’s heart is hardened and he changes his mind. How do you decide if a decision is a bad one? And how do you change what you are doing to correct it going forward?

Kabbalat Shabbat services are at 6:30 p.m. tonight (Note the earlier time!!) and Shabbat morning services will be tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Our services this week are only on Zoom and the Zoom links can be found in the Shabbat Preview.

I hope we will see you this Shabbat! If not, I hope you will celebrate the new year safely. Let’s hope for a healthy and happy 2022! Shabbat Shalom!
