A Message from  
Rabbi Peter Stein

Shabbat Shalom!  Rabbi Levy and I continue to relish the warm embrace and enthusiastic Rabbi Steinresponse of everyone in the TBK family.  We look forward to seeing you tonight and tomorrow at Shabbat worship and study, as well as at the gala concert next week.

Working closely with our cantorial soloist Keri Berger, we are striving to create a Shabbat atmosphere that is joyful and inclusive.  Invite your friends and neighbors, all those who would enjoy meeting us, to come with you.  We will sing together, pray together, and immerse ourselves in the sacred peace that is Shabbat.  Each week, of course, we turn to a new chapter in Torah.  Each week, we reflect on the ancient words in light of today’s realities.

This week’s portion is Matot, the penultimate section in the book of Numbers.  It is a challenging portion, with brutal descriptions of the fight waged by the Israelites as they approached the Promised Land.  Reading this portion allows us to consider the broadest lessons of the Torah: what does it mean to follow God’s command?  What is it in our history that guides our lives today, both by positive and negative example?  What does it mean to be faithful and responsible to the group, above and beyond one’s personal needs and preferences?  

We will reflect on these questions and more during our Shabbat worship this weekend.  Rabbi Levy and I look forward to greeting you Friday night at 6 PM and Saturday morning at 10:30 AM.  TaNaKh study is on Saturday morning at 8:00 and rabbinic-led Torah study is on Saturday morning at 9:15.

Rabbi Peter W. Stein
