The Book of Exodus: Torah Session
with Rabbi Linda Shriner-Cahn

We will be doing a deep dive into the Book of Exodus. All you need to be part of the class is access to a Jewish Bible. It's a great way to prepare for Passover months in advance! We will be recording classes should you miss one. It's never too late to join! You can jump in and out any time.

Please email Rabbi Linda if you are interested

2 Nisan 5783
Leviticus 1:1 - 5:26

Dear Friends,

Has the world has gotten smaller? Sometimes it seems like it is spinning out of control. Or maybe it’s that we receive so much information so quickly that our internal processors are overloaded. The world and what happens at every level has always been complex with a multitude of simultaneous moving parts, but we were simply not aware. Information was not instantaneous, though it might have been more carefully vetted. Those able to see the big picture were often thought to be brilliant.

With all of this information hurtling at us at lightning speed, what are we to do? How do we respond? Slowly and with care seems to be a reasonable answer. Picking that one thing (or maybe two) that we are able to address with care makes our lives manageable.

We have just entered into the month of Nisan, the month where the new moon is considered one of the four new years on the Jewish calendar. Although Passover is around the corner, let us prepare for it gently, reminding ourselves that this is a time when, along with the Exodus from Egypt, we celebrate the arrival of spring. The weather is finally warming up, the daffodils are in bloom, and we are getting ready to be with those we love and share stories with one another: stories of our people and stories of our connection to those with whom we have gathered, those who are present, and those who are not. It is the perfect time to push the restart button and take a deep breath. It is a time for renewal.


Mitzvah of the Week

Israel is on mind and in my heart this week. With that in mind, I invite you to be a listening ear to those you know who live there and are subject to the current stressful situation. Whether by text, email or phone, they may be uncomfortable voicing their feelings to those near them and you may be able to provide a safe space.eemingly small actions can make a difference. What we have learned over the last three years is that we feel better when we know those out there are concerned about us.

 In terms of organizations to support, you know where you stand and where support is needed. If you don’t I am more than happy to give you a few options. 

But the mitzvah that I invite us to take part in this week is to reach out -- not for a political conversation, unless that’s where they lead you, but rather to find out how those you know are coping with yet another stressful situation, coming as it does after the lockdown three years ago.
