This Week's Torah Portion: Ki Teitze
Parashat HaShavuah

Moses reviews a wide variety of laws regarding family, animals, and property. (21:10–22:12)

Various civil and criminal laws are delineated, including those regarding sexual relationships, interaction with non-Israelites, loans, vows, and divorce. (22:13–24:5)

Laws of commerce pertaining to loans, fair wages, and proper weights and measures are given. (24:10–25:16)

The parashah concludes with the commandment to remember for all time the most heinous act committed against the Israelites—Amalek’s killing of the old, weak, and infirm after the Israelites left Egypt. (25:17–19)

10 AM
Jewish calendars now available in
front office
The temple office has Jewish calendars for the new year courtesy of Bloomfield-Cooper Funeral Home.  They can be picked up anytime the office is open.  They are absolutely free of charge.  
Wednesday Theology Class

The Wednesday Theology class is in the advanced stages of being planned.  This year we will study a most meaningful text, Pirke Avot with a distinctly spiritual slant and social justice lens. You will find it engaging and, best of all, useful in your own lives.  The class meets on Wednesdays at 10 am and, when the final calendar is done, I will get the information to everyone on the Elijah list.  

We will be studying from the new Pirkei Avot book which can be found at this link.
