E-blast for March 16, 2018

Join us for Shabbat Services this Friday evening, March 16 at 7:00 pm. Jerry Flanzer will lead the service. Tom Doyle, an expert on cyber security, will give a sobering talk on the subject following the service. Heidi Doyle is sponsoring the Oneg.
We begin, this week, the Book of Leviticus with Parashat Vayikra. We learn from it one of the most important life lessons the Torah can offer: If it can be broken, it can be fixed. This Torah portion speaks to

the fact that we will commit transgressions. Some will be by mistake and some will be intentional. Regardless, the Torah clearly teaches that we have the opportunity and the responsibility to repair the damage we have done and seek forgiveness.

Forgiveness and repair are always available to us. What a powerful lesson this teaches that we do not have to be defined by our mistakes. We can fix what we have broken. We are told that as long as there is life, there is still time to make spiritual repairs as well. We can set right all the thing that are wrong.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday evening.


Rabbi Yakar’s adult education class on Jewish Mussar – Jewish Values and Traits, will continue on Tuesday, March 20 at 6:30 pm. The last session will be two weeks later on Tuesday, April 3.
