Shabbat Shalom: Sh’lach

Posted on June 24, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever scouted out a new place to visit, either in person or online? What makes you decide whether it is somewhere you want to go? In this week’s Torah portion, Moses sends scouts into the Land of Canaan. While they all say it is a good land, only two, Joshua and Caleb, say the Israelites can take it. The others believe the cities are too fortified and the people are too big (giants!). Do you find you exaggerate a potential location’s positive or negative qualities in order to justify your choice when you are making a decision of where to go?

Kabbalat Shabbat services are at 8:00 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!
