Shabbat Shalom

Vayakhel (Gathered) Exodus 35:1-38:20

Portion Vayakhel discusses coming together. This principle has led to community life becoming a firm foundation for the Jewish people. Join Shmuel as he discusses bowling leagues, social capital, and the importance of community.

Tezave (You Shall Command) – Exodus 27:20 – 30:10

Welcome to the ordinary days of life around the tabernacle. This portion conveys the importance of consistency. Serving G-d, maintaining relationships, or developing a new habit all must be built on a foundation of consistency. Join Shmuel to learn about the daily sacrifices in the Tabernacle, true love, and consistency.

Mishpatim (Laws) – Exodus 21:1 – 24:18

After the adventures of Genesis and the highs of Mt Sinai, portion Mishpatim leads us to lists of detailed, often boring laws. Why is this? Why does the Torah jump from the exciting to the mundane?
