Shabbat Highlights 

For the health and safety of our community, RSVP is required for all Shabbat meals.   Text Events to 607-797-0015 to RSVP.

For this week both Friday night meals are capped and we sadly cannot accept anymore reservations. We are working on additional offerings for the weeks to come. If you made a reservation and do not plan to come please cancel it so it opens room for someone else. Please remember which meal you signed up for as you will only be able to enter for that meal. People who signed up for both will not be able to come for either. Please make sure you cancel one or the other.

There is still room for Shabbat Kiddush which will be open 12-12:45pm. People will be checked in between 12 and 12:20pm only.  There is also room for Seudah Shelishit.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Torah Portion: Ki Teitzei
Rabbi Tzvi Freeman

In the month of Elul, the month before Rosh Hashanah, a signal goes out to every Jewish soul that it is time to return to the palace that is home.

It is a signal both subtle and loud.

Subtle, because it does not awaken even those who are closest—every soul must awaken itself. Loud, because it reaches those who have been thrown to the edge of the universe.

Loud, because it is a signal of love and joy. Subtle, because it is an intimately personal call.

Loud, because it provides immeasurable powers to break out of whatever holds you back, lift you above all obstacles, and carry you all the way home. Subtle, because the power is there, but latent, quiet, awaiting your determination.

How can a signal be both subtle and loud, joyful and intimate, empowering and latent?

Because this signal originates from the very origin of your own soul, that place from which your soul was torn but has never truly abandoned. And as distant as a soul may stray, as lost as she may be, she will always remain one with her Beloved.

And now she hears her Beloved call, from a place deep within herself.
