A weekend to anticipate

23/03/2023 09:03:40 AM


This coming weekend is truly one to anticipate.

First, we will be meeting a candidate for our newly created position of spiritual engagement director. Micah Friedman will lead Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday evening, beginning at 6pm.

At a Shabbat dinner by reservation, he will share a dvar torah. On Shabbat morning, he will deliver the sermon and lead Musaf. In the early evening, he will teach a class. On Sunday morning, he will conduct a program for young families. I encourage us all to attend as much as possible and share your feedback.

This coming Shabbat afternoon at 4pm, the women's Minyan returns after a hiatus of nearly a decade. Women of all ages will share in conducting portions of the Shabbat Mincha service, which include opportunities for leading prayer, reading Torah, reciting Aliyah blessings, opening the Ark, and lifting/tying the Torah. All women are invited to attend. Refreshments will follow the service.

On Sunday morning at 9:30am, all men and women as well as post Bar Mitzvah boys and Bat Mitzvah girls are invited to a one session seminar to learn or review the symbols and sounds of Haftarah cantillation. The hope is that more people will want to chant Haftarot in the future.

What a Shabbat and weekend to anticipate!

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Howard Morrison
