Shabbat Shalom: D’varim

Posted on August 5, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: When you retell a story, do you always tell it the same way? Or do you sometimes embellish or leave things out? This week, we begin the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses’ retelling of the story of the Israelites wandering in the desert, along with many warnings to follow God’s laws. He sometimes veers from the story we read in the prior three books. Do you think that retelling a story differently from how it happened is a good practice? What makes it so?

Shabbat Alive services are at 6:30 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!
