Shabbat Shalom: P’kudei

Posted on March 4, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: When you receive gifts, do you keep track of them? Do you keep a record of what you have received, either in total or by gift? In this week’s Torah portion, we have an accounting of the total amount  of gold, silver and copper that was donated for the creation of the Mishakan, as well as what those precious metals were used for. If you have lists of gifts you have received, do you also keep track of how you use(d) them? What is the value in doing this?

Shabbat Alive services are at 6:30 p.m. tonight and Shabbat morning services will be tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Both are multi-access: in-person and on Zoom.

Shabbat Shalom!
