Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach! I hope that you are having a wonderful Passover so far. Tomorrow in services we will read a selection from the Torah for the intermediate Shabbat of Passover as well as a selection from Shir HaShirim, the Song of Songs. This is one of the megillot (scrolls) that are read on the different Jewish holiday.
Please plan on coming to shabbat services with questions that came up at your seders so that we can all learn from one another.
Services for the remainder of Passover are as follows:
Sunday, April 16, Evening Service 6:15 pm
Monday, April 17, Morning Service 9:15 am, Evening Service 5:45 pm
Tuesday, April 18, Morning Service 9:15 am, with Yizkor at 11 am. Evening service 5:45 pm.
As the 2nd yahrzeit (anniversary) of his passing approaches, our community will gather together on the 8th day of Passover to remember Rabbi Allan Schranz, who served as our spiritual leader from 1998 to 2012. We will dedicate the introduction to the Yizkor service to his memory and unveil a plaque inscribed with his words on the lobby memorial wall. We will hear from some SPS members who were close to him as they briefly reflect on his life and legacy. The Yizkor prayers will immediately follow
Thought Question: If you had been an Israelite, would you have been able to cross the red sea? What would have taken for you to cross?
