Shabbat Shalom from Rabbi Ain – November 3, 2017

Shabbat Shalom! This week we read from Parashat Vayera. In this Torah portion, three guests arrive at Abraham and Sarah’s tent. They inform Abraham that God will give the elderly Sarah a child. The prophesy comes true, and they name their son Isaac. God informs Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah will be destroyed, though Abraham attempts to convince God otherwise. God tells Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. Abraham obliges but is told that it was a test of faith and offers a ram to sacrifice instead.

Friday night services are at 6:15 pm and Saturday morning services are at 9:15 am.  Candle Lighting is at 5:31 pm.  We will celebrate as Myles Levine is called to the Torah as a bar mitzvah.
