Shabbat Shalom: Vayeira

Posted on November 11, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: How do you make your home welcoming to guests? What do you do to entice people to visit you and to enjoy their stay? In this week’s Torah portion, Abraham rushes to welcome strangers to his tent, washing the sand from their feet and serving them freshly baked bread, along with milk and then meat (the kosher laws come later, but some rabbis argue that they were served separately and so kashrut was maintained!). Do you prepare special foods for your guests? How do you make them comfortable while they are visiting?

Tonight, Kabbalat Shabbat services are at 8:00 p.m. and tomorrow morning, Shabbat morning services will begin 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!
