Shabbat Shalom: Vayishlach

Posted on December 1, 2023

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: When someone wants to give you a gift and you do not need it, how do you respond? Do you accept it or do you tell the person you do not want it? In this week’s Torah portion, Esau declines Jacob’s gifts at first, saying that he has an abundant amount of possessions. Jacob pushes him to accept them and eventually he does. How do you feel when you are forced (or feel you are forced) to accept a gift that you do not want or need?

Please join us for Shabbat Services this week: Friday night at 6:30 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!
