The Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is called Shabbat Shuvah, Shabbat of Return because its special haftarah reading begins with the words Shuvah Yisrael "Return O Israel," from the prophecy of Hoshea. It is also referred to as Shabbat Teshuvah because it falls during the Ten Days of Repentance.

This Weeks Torah Portion

Moses went and spoke these things to all Israel. He said to them: "I am now one hundred and twenty years old, I can no longer be active. Moreover, the Eternal has said to me, 'You shall not go across yonder Jordan.'"
- Deuteronomy 31:1–300

  • Moses prepares the people for his death and announces that Joshua will succeed him. (31:1–8)

  • Moses instructs the priests and the elders regarding the importance of reading the Torah. (31:9–13)

  • God informs Moses that upon his death, the people will commit idolatry and "many evils and troubles shall befall them." God tells Moses to teach the people a poem that will "be My witness." (31:14–30)

IF YOU WOULD LIKE ANYTHING ADDED
TO OUR BULLETIN or ANNOUNCEMENTS,
PLEASE LET THE RABBI KNOW by WEDNESDAY EACH WEEK.


HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is to guarantee patient privacy, which is good for the patient because it protects their confidentiality, but not very helpful when the Temple is trying to find patients. Please do not assume that we know you are in the hospital or that the Chaplains Office has contacted the Temple or the Rabbi, even if a chaplain has visited you. PLEASE, I want to be able to visit you. I want to be able to offer you the solace and perspective of our tradition. The Temple wants to let you know that we care, but that can only happen when we know where you are. 

Thank you,

Rabbi Raina Siroty
