Shabbat Shalom: B’shalach

Posted on January 26, 2024

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Can you think of a leader who refused to change their course of action until it was too late? What do you suppose could have prompted them to pivot earlier? In this week’s Torah portion, Pharaoh chases the Israelites to the shores of the Sea of Reeds and then follows them in when the waters part… completely forgetting the plagues. As a result, his armies are destroyed. Have you ever found yourself charging forward without remembering something that should have caused you to stop? How can you avoid doing this in the future?

Please join us for Shabbat Services this week! We have our annual Debbie Friedman Shabbat on Friday night at 8:00 p.m. and Shabbat Shirah – the song of the sea – on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. Both are multi-access – in person and on Zoom. Details are in your Shabbat Preview.

Shabbat Shalom!
