from Israeli Elections to Jews of China

Dear Haverim:

*TONIGHT, Friday, March 20, 6:30 p.m., Kabbalat Shabbat(6 p.m. Happy Hour).  Drash topic: ISRAELI ELECTION RESULTS: A Rabbinic Perspective Through Text Study. We will also remember the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March, through the eye-witness account of my childhood family rabbi, Rabbi H. David Teitelbaum, interviewed this morning on NPR’s Morning Edition. Tonight begins the celebration of the bar mitzvah of Adam Kerzner.

*TOMORROW, Saturday, March 21, 9:30 a.m., Shabbat services.  In celebration of his bar mitzvah, Adam Kernzer will be our guest darshan.   His topic: Parshat Vayikra: Sacrifices vs. Korbanot. We thank the Kerzner family for graciously sponsoring our Kiddush lunch.
-12:30 p.m. – Torah study in the Chapel, this week led by Michele Weiner.  She will look at the concept of sacrifices and unpack them through the lense of musar, making an ancient biblical mode of worship relevant and applicable for us today.  Participants are encouraged to get through their Kiddush lunch early and go directly to the chapel to maximize their study experience.

*Sunday, March 22
9 a.m. Morning Minyan and Hebrew School
7 p.m. Kraft Education Committee presents Jewish History of China and the Hagaddah, with Professor David Stern of the University of Pennsylvania – really appropriate as we celebrate Shabbat HaHodesh – and the two week countdown to Peaach !

Come to Beth Shalom for uplifting and educational experiences!

Shabbat shalom!
Rabbi Michael
