Torah: Vayikra 1st Cycle, Leviticus 1:1—3:5
The Priestly manual starts by describing (a) the completely burnt offering (olah), (b) the meal offering (mincha), and (c) the shlamim offering (variously translated as peace offering or well-being).  These, and other offerings described in Leviticus are understood as a means of connecting with the Devine.  As a manual for rebuilding the temple the detail provides an important function.  As an important component of worship moderns need to find sources of connection in order to reconstruct important connections with the Devine.
Our Mi Shebeirach/healing prayer list can be viewed by clicking on the blue text. If you would like to add someone to the list, or if there’s a name on the list that we can remove, please let Joann or Cantor George know. Please help us keep it up to date!

Tuesday Afternoon Torah

Join Rabbi Steven and Rabbi Jacke for our next afternoon Torah study, virtually Tuesday, March 28, at 4:30 p.m. Our study will be guided by the Reconstructionist view of Torah seeking to understand how looking at a "diary of the Jewish people" can help us to "become more fully human."

Counting the Omer

From the evening of the second Seder until Shavuot is 7 full weeks. The 7 weeks between freedom and revelation is the period of counting the omer (sfirat ha'omer). Even as this was an important period of preparation for the original receivers of revelation, so too is it an important period for us. This is a time of reflection, self-examination, improvement, and repair. These 7 full weeks can be really full of our effort to make this world a better place.
The technology of counting the omer is a significant tool in our effort at betterment/repair. Each day of the 7 weeks (49 days) represents a different attribute that we can enliven for ourselves and for the world.
Join Rabbi Steven, Rabbi Emily and Cantor George as we journey from enslavement to revelation. Each night at 8:00 p.m. from April 6 until May 25 we will gather virtually 
to count the omer. 
An omer counting page with a chart has been created for you to follow. For those of you wanting a text for the counting of the omer, you can download that by clicking here.
