Shabbat Services – May 2017

May 5 Rabbi-Led Service

“What?  Me Holy?”

Please join me for a worship service on Friday, May 5, at 6:30.

A Torah service will be included.  The reading for that Shabbat is a double parshah:  Aḥarei Mot and Kedoshim.  Kedoshim is the central parshah of the central book of the Torah, not a coincidental fact.  It begins: Adonai spoke unto Moses, saying:  Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel and say unto them: You shall be holy; for I Adonai your God am holy.  What does this mean?  Do we all have to be saints?  Angels?  Rebbes?  Can a person, Jewish or not, lead an ordinary life and be holy, too?

We’ll be considering these things on May 5.
