Kavvanah of the Week
This year we are exploring kavvanot - short orientations or intentions that reflect the part of ourselves that we bring to a particular moment.
Kavvanot can be used for moments and actions of any size and significance.
While Rabbi Silver is away, she has asked her colleagues to share their prayers and kavvanot with our community. Here is one by Trisha Arlin.
It Is Upon Us

It is upon us!
It is upon us to repair the broken places.
It is upon us to comfort the sick in body and heart.
It is upon us to bring sweetness to those around us.
It is upon us to face the truth.
It is upon us to see that justice is done.
It is upon us to return to our core and decent selves.
It is upon us to understand that our prayers are empty without action.
It is upon us to stand up for the survival of all our communities.
We bend our knees!
We bend our knees to acknowledge how small we are in the face of all this responsibility.
We bend our knees to warm up for all the tasks to come.
We bend our knees so that we may dance at our victories.
We are all one in the One-ness, there is no other.
And there is no one else to do the hard work.
It is upon us
To save the world.

-- Trisha Arlin
Torah Service Prayer
Here is the new prayer we have created for our Torah service. Thank you to Elliot Finkelstein for the idea! Please join in from home.

Nishmat Kol Hai, Breath of Life
bless the people of this community
their families and their friends
here and at home.
HaShekhinah, Beloved One
bless our neighbors in this city
may we live in harmony
may we be proud of each other.
HaTzur, Protecting One
bless this country, its government,
all who strive for its welfare
all who risk themselves to protect it.
Elohei Avoteinu, God of our ancestors
bless the land of Israel
may it flourish in hope and in honor
spread over it a shelter of peace.
Ma’ayan Hayyenu, Wellspring of our lives,
bless the Jewish people
may we be ambassadors of our tradition
may we be spared from distress and shame.
Hamakom, All-present One
bless the world and all that is in it
help us defend it and preserve it
for the generations that will follow us.
May all this be so,
And we say,
Parashat Balak
Torah: Numbers 22:2-38
Maftir: Numbers 22:36-38
Haftarah: Micah 5:6 - 6:8

The Torah reading for this week is in the panel above. If you do not have a Humash at home you can find it on the link below. We are reading Triennial Year 2, but you might like to read the full portion (“Full Kriyah”).
Our Shabbat brochure with yahrzeits and simchas for this week is attached. You might wish to take special notice of those who are sick and take a moment to direct your thoughts towards them.
Thank you!
Thank you to all those listed below who performed the mitzvah of supporting our community the past three week.
