Saturday, August 19, 10:30 am Welcome Back our "Old" Minyan Torah at a Saturday Morning Garden Service at Abigail & Shoshana's
We will open the Torah to Parashat Re'ay and bless the new moon of Elul.
"See! Today I set before you blessing and challenge!" Parashat Re'ay:Blessing is placed before you, often in the disguise of a challenge. through your own work the latent light is brought out and the depth of good is revealed, hidden in the challenge. through this pattern you meet God halfway, become a partner in the creation, and feel that you own and have earned the good that you have brought out."
- Lekutei Torah, Arizal, quoted in MetaParshiot, R. David Wolfe-Blank
From Abigail: "Join us Saturday morning at 11 as we begin the joyful and challenging process of discernment that will lead us, as individuals and as a community, to find our way into this uniquely significant new year."
Kiddush and veggie/fish/dairy potluck afterwards. Wear layers, bring your sunhat!
Location: 2225 Woolsey St., Berkeley 94705. For more information, or to help with the service, call Abigail 510-914-4247
