Neighborhood Shabbat Dinners May 1
avatar

shabbat-table-robert-bardach

Join us for a casual dinner, great company and some Shabbat joy. “Neighborhood Shabbat” is made up of pot-luck dinners in multiple members’ homes, and is an opportunity to spend time with old friends and make new ones.

At its essence, Shabbat is about slowing down, spending time with friends and family, and expressing thanks for our blessings. Shabbat is truly an antidote to the frenetic lives so many of us lead. When we light the candles, we’ll pause for a moment to breathe out the busy week and breathe in an atmosphere of rest and peace. We’ll also enjoy sweet wine and grape juice, delicious challah, and good food – and you won’t have to cook a full meal on your own and do all the dishes!

Our last Neighborhood Shabbat drew over 70 people in 6 homes – and was a lot of fun!

RSVP to the TBA office if you are interested in participating by April 27.  You will then be contacted about what home to attend and food contribution you might bring.

Counting the Omer and Collecting Cereal for Bootstraps
avatar

Cereal box

We count 49 days, from Passover to Shavuot, from leaving slavery in Egypt until we reach Mt Sinai and receive Torah.  It is a journey in which we mark each day by counting (today is the first day of the omer, today is one week and one day of the omer, etc.).  We may reflect on leaving behind what enslaves us in our lives – psychologically, spiritually, or even physically – and try to let go of just a little bit more of it so that we are ready to accept the ethics and values embodied in Torah.  Counting the omer can be a spiritual journey and taking time each day for reflection can be deeply meaningful.

Like many of our holidays and customs, the practice of counting the omer has its roots in agriculture.  When the ancient Temple stood in Jerusalem, an “omer” (measurement) of grains was brought each of the 49 days as an offering.

During this period it is a custom at Temple B’nai Abraham to collect grains in the form of cereal – an item needed desperately by the food bank at Beverly Bootstraps.  Please bring your offerings to the collection box in the lobby.

For more on the spiritual aspects of the omer, please join us at Friday night services!
