Weekly Message 12.27.19
Greetings from out on the road! We have been to South Carolina and are now about to spend Shabbat Hanukkah in Houston with family.
Chris and I very much enjoyed the first night of Hanukkah celebrated at the JCC and the singing at the assisted living center that preceded it. Yasher Koach (good strength=congratulations) to all those who helped make the day a joyful one and a great success!
This Shabbat, we will continue reading the story of Joseph in Egypt and how he was able to overcome the immaturity of his youth to ultimately accept his brothers and save them and their families from the famine that had struck the land.
And to celebrate Hanukkah, Elliot will chant a special Haftorah for Shabbat Hanukkah from the Prophet Zachariah which concludes with the famous often quoted "Not by might nor by power, but by my spirit says the Lord of Hosts".
Since many of us are away for the winter holidays, please come to services Friday at 7:30 pm and Saturday at 9:30 am to help make the minyan!
Wishing you all a very happy Hanukkah and new year!
See you soon!
