MULTI-ACCESS: Shabbat Morning – Devarim – celebrating the arrival of baby Noa, child of Elizabeth Burger
Join us for a Shabbat morning service with Rabbi David Cooper and Beth Dickinson. This day is the 9th of Av (“Tisha B’Av”), a day of mourning and fasting for significant destruction in the past. But the observance is postponed to the next day because this year the 9th of Av falls on Shabbat. Because it is the last Shabbat before Tisha b’Av, the tradition provides a special reading from the Book of Isaiah (chapter 1:1-27). In this segment, the prophet is incensed because people piously performing all the rituals are also perpetuating a society grossly unethical, immoral to the core. These are the first 27 verses of the collected books of the prophets and set the stage for a Jewish spirituality that emphasizes morality and ethics over ritual adhesion. It is actually the very basis of Kehilla Community Synagogue. “Come let us reason together” and study this short foundational text. We will also be honoring Elizabeth Burger as a new parent, celebrating the simcha of bestowing baby Noa her Hebrew name, and blessing baby Noa in the Torah! Kiddush lunch to follow, generously sponsored by the Burger family.
