On Thursday evening, as part of our incredible Simchat Torah celebration, we begin reading the Torah all over again – starting with the Book of Genesis. This is the perfect time for you to begin reading our story – especially if you have never done so. This week, we read about the creation of the world and the tale of Adam and Eve. You can find the parasha (weekly Torah reading) here: http://www.jtsa.edu/PreBuilt/ParashahArchives/jpstext/bereshit.shtml.
Starting this Friday, here on BlogShalom, I will be posting some issues and questions pertaining to the weekly parasha. At the beginning of each week, I will send out a link that will direct you to the parasha. I encourage you to read it and join the weekly discussion on the blog.
The stories in the Torah are ancient, but still teach us lessons that are so very relevant to our lives today. I look forward to studying Torah with you!
Don’t forget to gather your friends and family – put on your dancing shoes and join us for Simchat Torah, Thursday at 7:00PM. Yizkor at 6:30.
