TORAH PORTION  

Sh'mini I ... The Eighth [Day]

Leviticus 9:1-10:11

On the eighth day Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel. He said to Aaron: "Take a calf of the herd for a purgation offering and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and bring them before the Eternal. - Sh'mini 9:1-3

SUMMARY: 
  • Aaron and his sons follow Moses' instructions and offer sacrifices so that God will forgive the people. (9:1-24)
  • Two of Aaron's sons, Nadab and Abihu, offer "alien fire" to God. God punishes these two priests by killing them immediately. (10:1-3)
  • God forbids Moses, Aaron, and his surviving sons from mourning but commands the rest of the people to do so. Priests are told not to drink alcohol before entering the sacred Tabernacle. (10:4-11)

HAPPY PASSOVER and SPRING BREAK

We had an amazing Community Seder on Saturday with over 60 people in attendance. Great thanks to Ritual, led by Sue and Rob Goldstein, and all the volunteers that helped with all aspects of this event. It shows what great things we can do when we all work together.

On April 22 at 12:15 pm, we will be having our annual meeting. There will be a lot of information concerning finances, membership, and our future. There will be some frank conversations about what we want Congregation Ner Tamid to be and proposals for how to get us there. I ask that you make attending this meeting a priority. We will be providing lunch and childcare.

We have sent out the notice of this meeting, as well as an evite. Please reply as soon as possible. If you have not gotten an invitation or notice, please contact me at cntgute@comcast.net and let me know how many will be coming to the meeting.

I look forward to seeing you at the annual meeting.

Michael Gutenstein
President

Mitzvah Moments

MILES BASKIN
April 21, 2018
As part of my bar mitzvah project, I will be helping a shelter for
homeless teens, Covenant House, by collecting socks for the teens
sheltered there. At Covenant House, homeless teens are sheltered
and cared for, but they are always in need of new clothes and other necessities. Please donate any new or unused socks you can to these
homeless teens. I will have a collection bin at the temple, 
or you can find me most Sunday mornings and Friday nights.
