Special Shabbat Honoring New/Prospective Members and Friends (Parshat Vayechi)
Join Rabbi Shohama, Reb David, Reb Eva and Your Band by the Sea with a musical and uplifting welcome to Shabbat that coincides with national Human Rights Shabbat 2013. This week’s portion (Vayechi), the end of the Book of Genesis, recounts the family of Jacob — his 12 sons — coming together and presaging the shift into the Book of Exodus, Jewish enslavement and ultimate liberation. What an especially propitious time to join together to honor new and prospective members and friends of Temple Beth-El. Celebratory oneg to follow, sponsored by the Board of Trustees.
