Shabbat Shalom: Chukat

Posted on July 8, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever been frustrated with someone and lost your temper? What happened? In this week’s portion, Moses loses his temper with the Israelites and strikes the rock at Meribah instead of telling speaking to it as God had commanded. While the water came out, there was a consequence: he and Aaron will not lead the people into the Land of Israel. When you have lost your temper, did you experience any unintended consequences? Were they severe?

Kabbalat Shabbat services are at 8:00 p.m. tonight. Tomorrow morning, Shabbat morning services will begin at 10:00 a.m. (Summer hours). 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!
