Counting the Omer

Saturday evening April 4 -
Friday evening May 22

Pesach and Shavuot are times of harvesting. Torah therefore called for sacrifices of thanksgiivng for the seven weeks in between.The counting, which lasts for 49 days, takes place at night, commencing with the second night of Pesach. Those who "count the Omer" recite a blessing each night of the 50 day period. We will be observing this ritual daily at TBK - pick up a flyer to have the days and the prayers in your hand.

 

It’s always a question…
When a member of the TBK family dies or loses a family member, you may want to reach out in sympathy and support. How do you hear about the loss? Some people hear from their network of friends and family. Some people read about it in the newspaper. Some people want to know right away. Some people would rather hear more later.

TBK posts the information to our website (TBK.org) at the time of passing, as soon as we have details.  We also distribute a notice of a death to the Board of Trustees, Religious Practices Committee members and the WRJ/Sisterhood office.

If you would like to be added to the email list to receive notices, please send your name to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You may also opt to check Brighton Memorial Chapel’s website (BrightonMemorialChapel.com.) which has information on all Jewish deaths that they are handling.

From Rabbi Peter Stein

This week, we begin again one of the books of Torah.  This Shabbat, we will read from the first portion of the book of Numbers.  It is always an exciting moment when we open one of the books: what new insights will we gain from this ancient text?  How have we changed since we read these words one year ago?  How is the world different than in past years when these words were considered?

Numbers is a book that reminds us that every person counts, because within this portion we read of one of the censuses.

There is unique importance to each individual.  Each one of us has gifts and each one of us has a contribution we can make.

This Shabbat and weekend, we will celebrate several distinctive and special elements of our temple family.  On Shabbat evening, we will celebrate a transition of leadership in our Sisterhood and a transition of leadership in our youth group board.  On Shabbat morning, we will rejoice as Sibley and Finley  Weinstein make their unique transitions as a bar mitzvah and a bat mitzvah.  And then, on Sunday morning, which is the holiday of Shavuot, we will celebrate with the members of our confirmation class.  One of my favorite elements of Confirmation is when each student offers a personal statement…articulating their own personal and unique connection to Judaism.

As we read the portions of Numbers, may we be blessed to glean insights that inspire us.  May all the words of Torah provide light on our unique paths through life

 

Shabbat Shalom!
Rabbi Stein
