Friday night Service led by Rabbi Shefa Gold

Friday, March 12, 2021 28 Adar 5781

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

On March 12th we celebrate Shabbat HaChodesh, a special time that prepares us for our journey to freedom in the month of Nissan, the first month which celebrates our rebirth with the Springtime. It is also Shabbat Vayakhel-Pekuday, when we read the last part of the Book of Exodus. Some Hasidic masters consider this the holiest parsha of Torah because it recounts the activation of the Mishkan, which is the culmination of our journey of liberation. If the Mishkan represents the sacred technology that connects us to the Infinite Mystery, then this is the Shabbat when the switch is turned on. 
Come join us in prayer, chant and holy conversation as we celebrate this mystical Shabbat of gathering and reflection.
