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 piece from Trisha Arlin, for Kabbalat Shabbat:
It grows dark.
I light two candles and drink a sip of wine
And the world changes for one day,
If I let it.
There will be music
And friendship
And food,
If I allow it.
There will be Torah
And wisdom
And God-ness,
If I permit it.
There will be quiet
And napping
And deep rest,
If I open up to it
There will be study
And expansion
And new ideas,
If I consent to it.
There will be prayer
And blessings
And meditation,
If I give in to it.

There will be hope
And renewal
And clarity,
If I walk toward it.

If I let it
If I allow it
If I permit it
If I open up to it
If I consent to it.
If I give in to it.
If I walk toward it
The world changes for one day.
Shabbat happens,
If I let it.

What is your own kavvanah for the week that is coming?

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!
