Shalom to all from the Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley.   

Erev Shabbat Services and Torah Study are cancelled this week due to heavy snows and extreme weather conditions.

 The Torah Portion Ki Tissa tells of the Children of Israel making a golden calf, causing Moshe to break the tablets of the law in anger. However, the Holy One gives the Israelites a second chance…Moses is summoned back up to Mt. Sinai and receives a second set of the Ten Commandments which he brings down to the people.

That is the message of this week’s Torah Portion. We get a second chance. We can learn and do better.

Wishing you all Shabbat Shalom. Hoping you get to light candles in your home this Friday…and will see you in synagogue another week!

note: no torah study this saturday, February 23rd!

Please join us for Torah Study, Saturdays at 11:00 am

Wednesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. all are invited to the morning minyan with a beautiful view of the red rocks from the sanctuary.  This interactive morning service includes time for questions and comments on the prayers and on the Torah portion of the current week. Visitors are most welcome, and actually needed to enable us to have a full minyan (prayer quorum of 10)  for mourners to say Kaddish. This is an opportunity to begin the day with prayer in a supportive community.

The Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley, located at 100 Meadow Lark Drive off Route 179 in Sedona, is a welcoming, egalitarian, inclusive congregation dedicated to building a link from the past to the future by providing religious, educational, social and cultural experiences.  The congregation is unaffiliated with any particular stream of Judaism in order to respect and serve the wide diversity of its members and visitors.  Rabbi Magal is available to speak with anyone on spiritual matters.  For more information call the office at 928 204-1286 or check the website:  www.jcsvv.org.
