Kavvanah of the Week
This year we are creating kavvanot - short orientations or intentions that reflect the part of ourselves that we bring to a particular moment.
A kavvanah needn’t be a prayer, or even mention God in any form.  It can simply be us taking time to arrange ourselves to meet what is coming towards us, a kind of drawing up of our inner resources so that we are just a little more conscious, a little more aware as we step into our next experience.
Kavvanot can be used for moments and actions of any size and significance. 
In the spirit of this week’s Torah portion and our experience over the past few months, here is one for being in the path of an oncoming storm:
The sky is the wrong color
the trees are horizontal
the air is full of rain
and my heart is full of dread
As I prepare myself
to bend before the storm that is coming
I dive into the stillness within me
I remember the power of silence
I call on the promise of the rainbow
May I
and those I love
and those I do not even know
be safe.
What is your own kavvanah for the week that is coming?
Rabbi Silver
Parashat Noach
Torah: Genesis 8:15 - 10:32
Maftir: Genesis 10:26-32
Haftarah: Isaiah 54:1 - 55:5

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 1, 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!
