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.
For Peace in the Middle East:
Sons of Abraham,
Sons of Hagar and Sarah,
Of Isaac and Ishmael:
Have you forgotten the day we buried our father?
Have you forgotten the day we carried his dead body into the cave near Hebron?
Have you forgotten the day we entered the darkness of Machpaelah
To lay our Patriarch to rest?
Sons of Esau and Jacob:
Have you forgotten the day we made peace?
The day we set aside past injustices and deep wounds to lay
 down our weapons and live?
Or the day we, too, buried our father? Have you forgotten that we
took Isaac’s corpse into that humble cave
To place him with his father for eternity?
Brother, I don’t remember crying with you.
Sister, I don’t remember mourning with you.
We should have cried the tears of generations.
We should have cried the tears of centuries,
The tears of fatherless sons
And motherless daughters,
So that we would remember in our flesh that we are one people,
From one father on earth and one Creator in heaven,
Divided only by time and history.
One G-d,
My brother calls you Allah.
My sister calls you Adonai.
You speak to some through Moses.
You speak to some through Mohammed.
We are one family, cousins and kin.
Holy One,
Light of truth,
Source of wisdom and strength,
In the name of our fathers and mothers,
In the name of justice and peace,
Help us to remember our history,
To mourn our losses together,
So that we may,
Once more,
Lay down our weapons and live.
G-d of All Being,
Bring peace and justice to the land,
And joy to our hearts.

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 Naso
Torah: Numbers 5:11 - 6:27
Maftir: Numbers 6:22-27
Haftarah: Judges 13:2-25

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 this past week.
