Weekly Message 06.02.2023 Parashat Naso

Parashat Naso (count) Numbers 4:21 - 7:89

HafTorah Judges - 13:2-25



Dear friends,


With the holiday of Shavuot now behind us, we begin the "summer season" and the month of June with our continued reading of the Book of Bamidbar with its second Sedrah of Nasso, the longest portion of the entire Torah! As is our practice, we will read the first triennial part which includes another census, and the responsibilities given to Levites, the Nazarites, and others, and additional laws. This portion also includes the priestly blessing which we recite daily in our prayers and bless our children on Shabbat:


יברכך ה' וישמרך

May The Lord bless you and keep you


יאר ה' פניו אליך ויחנך

May The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you


ישא ה' פניו אליך וישם לך שלום

May The Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace



In keeping with the discussion of the Nazarites in the Torah reading, our Haftorah from the Book of Judges recounts the story of Samson the Nazarite.


Please join us at services tonight at 7:30 pm and tomorrow morning at 9:30 am in-person or virtually, on Zoom to participate in the service and Torah discussion and help make the minyan so Kaddish can be recited.


Also, a reminder that there will be a memorial service on Tuesday, June 6th at 9:30 am at the synagogue for Howard Land, the late beloved brother of Paul Land and uncle of Mark Land. A luncheon will follow and all are invited and encouraged to attend.


Please get your reservations in for our exciting trip to Israel now only 5 months away, October 30th-November 10th!


See you on Shabbat!


Ron Becker,

Spiritual Leader
