Weekly Message 01.07.2022 Parashat Bo

Parashat Bo (go/come) Exodus 10:1 - 13:16

Jeremiah 46:13 - 28



Dear friends,


We are about to enjoy our first Shabbat of the month of Shevat and our second Shabbat of the new secular year.


This weeks Torah portion (Bo in the Book of Exodus) is all about freedom and the personal and collected responsibilities that come with it, and how freedom must be appreciated and protected.


We begin our reading and studying of the last triennial part of the Sedrah with the horrific final plague, that of the death of the first born. We end the reading with the commandment to celebrate Passover and the description of the first Passover immediately prior to the hasty exodus from Egypt. Finally, we read a Haftorah from the prophet Jeremiah which depicts the conquering of Egypt by the Babylonians. And we are especially fortunate that our beloved esteemed president Eileen Hochstadt will be celebrating the anniversary of her Bat Mitzvah by chanting that Haftorah to mark the occasion. She and Chris & I will be jointly sponsoring a "socially distant" bagels and coffee kiddush to celebrate her birthday/Bat Mitzvah anniversary and our 48th wedding anniversary immediately after services tomorrow morning.


Please join us in-person or virtually tonight at 7:30 pm and tomorrow morning at 9:30 am for prayer, study, and sharing Shabbat together!


Ron Becker,

Spiritual Leader
