Shabbat Toldot

Saturday, November 18th, 10:00 a.m.

Toldot tells the story of the birth of Rebecca's twins, Jacob and Esau. Jacob's name will later be called Israel. As we wait for the return of the Children of Israel from the terror tunnels of Hamas, we listen to the voices of Israeli kids asking us to stand by them as they anxiously wait for their loved ones to return home.
