Shabbat Shalom: Va’eira

Posted on January 12, 2024

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever discounted a promise someone made to you? Why did you decide that their word wasn’t good? In this week’s Torah portion, the Israelites are so overwhelmed by their work that they cannot listen to Moses when he tells them that they will be freed by God. When have you not believed in a promise of redemption because of the pace of your own life?

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.

I hope you will also join us on Monday for our annual Recitation of the Letter from Birmingham Jail to honor and remember Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. You can register to come in person at To attend online, you can register at

Shabbat Shalom!
