Shabbat Shalom: Tazria

Posted on April 1, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever been self-conscious about an imperfection in your appearance? In this week’s Torah portion, when a person is diagnosed with Tzara’at (often incorrectly translated as leprosy), they must leave the camp for 7 days, drawing attention to themselves by calling out, “Impure! Impure!”. We often have the instinct to hide our imperfections. Does acknowledging an imperfection make it easier to live with? Or does it make it harder?

This afternoon we will host Tot Shabbat on the Splash Pad. Bring a picnic blanket and join in the fun! Register at Hope to see you there!

Shabbat Alive services are at 6:30 p.m. tonight and Shabbat morning services will be tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Both services are multi-access: in person and on Zoom.  To register to come in person, please go to The Zoom links can be found in the Shabbat Preview.

Shabbat Shalom!
