Rabbi's Erev Shabbat Message

09/18/2020 12:30:15 PM


Shabbat Rosh HaShanah 5781
Shanah Tovah!

תכלה שנה וקללותה תחל שנה וברכותיה
Tikhleh Shanah V'Kliloteha,Takhel Shanah Uvirkhoteha 
The year and its curses is ending
May the New Year bring blessing

Shalom Shir Tikvah Learning Community,

This evening at sundown we begin the New Year of 5781. May it be a better year than 5780 was!

We can't be together as we wish to be on this Rosh HaShanah, but at Shir Tikvah we've taken this as an opportunity and a challenge.

We are spreading out the chances to be together in different ways, during the entire Ten Days.

Our Rosh HaShanah Seder offers us many traditional ways to wish for a good year, far beyond apples and honey.
Join us live at 6pm, or gather on your own time with your own havurah/germ pod/family.
The list of symbolic foods is in the Haggadah.
Here's the link: Haggadah for Rosh Hashanah
To join Rabbi Ariel and Shir Tikvah companions at 6pm: ZOOM LINK
Meeting ID881 4890 3871

Rabbi Ariel's Rosh HaShanah message is here:
for you to watch at your convenience.

We are grateful to St Mark’s Lutheran for making their parking lot available for us to gather safely in our cars to fulfill

the mitzvah of hearing the Shofar sounded by our ba’aley Tekiyah Matityahu Rolland and Gabbai Ronit Scheyer with Rabbi Ariel.

Join us at 11am on Sunday morning: come to the parking lot, stay in your car, and bring your phone or tablet to tune in to this link:  SHOFAR (Meeting ID: 857 5622 8306  Passcode: shofar) to enhance your sound. 

Also on Sunday: Shofar Across Oregon! If you have a shofar, go outside and sound a long Teki’ah Gedolah with Jews throughout Oregon at 4pm.



Elul Book Discussion The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin
Tuesday, September 22nd @ 5:00 pm

Meeting ID: 995 0360 1642
Passcode: jbaldwin

Read The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin and/or watch "I Am Not Your Negro", available streaming on Netflix and the Multnomah County Library

ALSO (links coming soon)

1. a High Holy Days slide show of as many Shir Tikvah members' photos as we can find

2. a Yizkor slide show of all our beloved Shir Tikvah companions who have died

Then there will be Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simkhat Torah, with many more choices to help us all make the day holy.

Stay tuned....

Even though we won't be together in the same place, at least not much and for sure not close, still we can be close in intention: we are Shir Tikvah, still community, still caring, still reaching out to each other, still belonging. Stay together, stay strong!

שבת שלום ושנה טובה ומתוקה
Shabbat Shalom, and Shanah Tovah uMetukah, my beloveds!
