A Weekly Message from Rabbi Sam Levine 1.8.21

A few upcoming things I’d like to emphasize:

    1. Tonight: Shabbat-a-BimBom, 6:30 pm

    2. Shabbat morning: join us for services as Ariel Yaron becomes bar mitzvah. Mazal tov to parents Eldad and Adrienne, and to Ariel!

    3. Tuesday night: Israel Now with Tomer Gekler – lots going on in the Holy Land right now – check in with our fantastic shaliach about politics, Coronavirus vaccinations, and so much more. 8:00 pm

    4. Wednesday night: Art as Torah. My sister-in-law, Israeli neuroscientist and artist Sharon Gershoni, will lead a discussion about artistic renderings of Biblical stories and how art can be used to interpret the text. This week: the binding of Isaac. See the weekly newsletter for details! Don’t miss this opportunity. 8:00 pm

    5. Keep an eye out for two “Synagogue Skills” classes coming up: Haftarah Chanting, taught by me, and Leading the Shabbat Morning Preliminary Service with Cantor Robert Kieval. More details next week. Please contact me if you think you might be interested in either one though, so I can gauge interest.
