Weekly Message 04.14.2023 Parashat Shemini

Parashat Shemini (eighth) Leviticus 9:1 - 11:47

HafTorah Samuel II 6:1 - 19



Dear friends,


Thanks to all that made the Passover holiday so meaningful and so delightful. Now that Yom Tov is over, we turn our attention back to the Book of Leviticus (Vayikra) and to all the many mitzvot that are introduced to us there.


Our Torah portion of the week is from Parashat Shemini. It opens with the consecration of the Mishkan (Tabernacle). Two of Aaron’s sons are consumed by a fire when they attempt to offer a “strange fire.” G-d describes the animals, birds, and fish that are permissible and prohibited for consumption, as well as some laws of ritual purity. Our Haftorah of the week is from the Prophet Samuel. As the Torah portion describes the consecration of the Tabernacle in the wilderness, the Haftorah describes it's arrival in King David's city, Jerusalem.


Please join us in-person or on Zoom tonight at 7:30 pm and tomorrow morning at 9:30 am to ensure that we continue to have a minyan for our services. And please joiin me on Yom HaShoah (Holcaust Memorial Day) Tuesday, April 18th at 7 pm at New Port Richey City Hall, 5919 Main Street, New Port Richey, FL 34652 to hear the Proclamation regarding Yom HaShoah that will be presented to our synagogue by Mayor Choper Davis. We will be taking photos of the congregants who attend right after, so please come and show our city how much we appreciate this important gesture. The entire process will only take a few minutes.


Shabbat Shalom!


Ron Becker,

Spiritual Leader
