Rabbi's Message

  • October 28, 2016


    As we settle in to the new year, it's a good time for a new limud. For over ten years we've been studying the weekly Parsha together at the Shabbos Morning Shiur. We've plumbed the depths of Torah, and have shared innovative approaches to reading Chumash.

    This year, we are going to do something different. The Mishna in the beginning of Pirkei Avos teaches that there are three pillars that the world in general, and a person's spiritual world in particular, is based upon. Torah study is one. Avodah, Temple Service, and its contemporary counterpart, Tefillah, is another. 

    In the past we've had Shiurim for both women and men to examine the beauty and meaning of the Shemonah Esrah. This Shabbos we will start studying the other parts of prayer, beginning with our daily Tefillos. We will be focusing on historical, philosophical, and literary aspects of our Tefillos. I hope you can join me as we embark on this exciting new journey.

    Have a great Shabbos.
