A Short Summer Vort
Somewhere in this Parsha we skip ahead to the fortieth year in the Midbar. We read of Miriam's death, the aftermath which included Mei Meriva and the death of Aharon Hakohein. That's quite a lot to absorb in one Parsha.

In the course of Jewish history, we have become accustomed to absorbing multiple large blows in a concentrated period of time. The question is what do we do afterwards? That is what defines us as a nation.

Shabbat Shalom
Kiddush this Shabbat is being sponsored by the Etz Chaim community.
Simchat Torah Kol Ha'nearim Tallit
For the third year, Etz Chaim will be adding names to our beautifully designed Kol Hane'arim Tallit on which you will have an opportunity to have your child(ren)'s and grandchild(ren)'s name embroidered.

For $36 per name - this can include first, middle and last names - your child's name will be embroidered on this Tallit which will become a permanent feature of our Simchat Torah celebration. 
The names are embroidered in Hebrew. If you need help with spelling, please contact Shelley Paradis at or Rabbi Klibanoff at

You can fill out the attached form or click on the shul's website /kol-hanearim and complete by July 15.
This is a firm deadline as we plan to use the Tallit this year and the stitching takes time.
