of your loved ones, please
Yitro ... Jethro
Jethro, priest of Midian, Moses' father-in-law, heard all that God had done for Moses and for Israel, God's people, how the Eternal had brought Israel out from Egypt.
- Exodus 18:1
· Yitro brings his daughter Zipporah and her two sons, Gershom and Eliezer, to his son-in-law Moses. (18:1-12)
· Moses follows Yitro's advice and appoints judges to help him lead the people. (18:13-27)
· The Children of Israel camp in front of Mount Sinai. Upon
hearing the covenant, the Israelites respond, "All that God has spoken we will do." (19:1-8)
· After three days of preparation, the Israelites encounter God
at Mount Sinai. (19:9-25)
· God gives the Ten Commandments aloud directly to the people.
· Frightened, the Children of Israel ask Moses to serve as an intermediary between God and them. Moses tells the people not to be afraid. (20:15-18)

Shabbat Candle Lighti
n Friday, February 14
"It is a Tree of Life to those who hold fast to it
and all its supporters are happy."
These are words that are sung in Hebrew when the Torah is out in the congregation. Indeed, the Torah is a Tree of Life. It is a source of support, guidance, history, identity, law and moral guidance. Our tradition teaches that there are 70 sides to the Torah; meaning that there is no one interpretation or understanding and no two Torah look exactly alike. Each is unique in its own way.
In every synagogue, the spiritual heart of the building is the sanctuary. At the heart of the sanctuary is the ark. And in the center of the Ark resides the Torah.
This week our congregation is privileged to have our spiritual heart strengthened as we formally welcome the gift of a new Torah. In honor of a significant birthday, our member David Joffe, has donated a Torah to Congregation Ner Tamid.
I hope we will all come to services this Friday to see the significant event of receiving this precious ritual object that will be used by our future Bar and Bat Mitzvah students and all of us on the holidays. Many of us have never had the honor to be in a congregation when such an event occurs and just take it for granted that Torah scrolls "appear" in our houses of worship.
As we will celebrate the joy of Shabbat this week, we will celebrate an important step in the life of CNT as we grow in joy and Torah.
- Rabbi Prass
