Shabbat Shalom: Mishpatim

Posted on February 9, 2024

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week:

Do you find it easy or difficult to pay attention to details? How closely do you do so? In this week’s portion, our Torah moves from the grand vision of the Ten Commandments to the specific ways in which those commandments translate into laws of ethical and social behavior. There are many such details – 53 in this portion alone. Does it help you to have the big picture before you look at the details? Why or why not?

Please join us for Shabbat Services this week! We have a special treat tonight, as Steve Taub is delivering the D’Var Torah. Kabbalat Shabbat services are tonight at 8:00 p.m. and Shabbat Morning services are tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Both are multi-access – in person and on Zoom. Details are in your Shabbat Preview.

Shabbat Shalom!
