Erev Shabbat lay-led services begin on Friday, January 11, at 7:30 pm, led by Anita Rosenfield including candle lighting, uplifting songs, inspiring readings, chanting from the Torah, a blessing for healing, and Kaddish, the Mourner's prayer. The Oneg flowers and refreshments are sponsored by Anita Rosenfield in memory of her parents, brother, and in honor of her own birthday.
Torah study on Saturday, January 12, will begin at 11 a.m. with the reading and discussion of Bo, Exodus 10:1 - 13: 16, telling of the last three plagues visited upon Pharaoh and Egypt, finally culminating in Pharaoh's decision to let the Israelite slaves go forth into freedom. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share at the pot luck luncheon following the study session.
Wednesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. all are invited to the egalitarian 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.
