Shabbat Shalom: Vayeitzei

Posted on November 24, 2023

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: What do you do to help care for those less fortunate in the community and the world? What benefits do you receive yourself from doing so? In this week’s Torah portion, after his dream of the angels going up and down the ladder, Jacob promises to give a tenth of everything he receives. At this point, he has nothing and does not know whether this will represent a large or small sacrifice for him in the future, but he makes the commitment, nonetheless. In what ways do you give of your time and your money? Is it a large or small sacrifice for you? If it is small, how can you give more?

Please join us for Shabbat Services this week: Friday night at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. Both are multi-access – in person and on Zoom. Details are in your Shabbat Preview.

Shabbat Shalom and I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
