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. 
This week, a kavvanah for a time of waiting:
I am waiting
and watching

like those watchmen in the psalm
waiting for the morning
waiting for the morning.

There is nothing to do but wait.

I remind myself:
these moments are precious.

May I live in them fully
may I not waste them
by putting them down as a deposit on the future.

and when they end
may I live fully also
may I find courage and stability
within whatever is waiting for me
whatever it may be.

May this be so.

What is your own kavvanah for the week that is coming?
Rabbi Silver
Parashat Vayera
Torah: Genesis 19:1 - 20:18
Maftir: Genesis 20:15-18
Haftarah: 2 Kings 4:1-37

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!
