¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

This week’s double-parasha Behar- Bechukosai carries with it the essence of our belief in Hashem. The first emphasizes the laws of shemittah/yovel and requires the agricultural society of Eretz Yisroel to refrain from planting and tilling every seven years. The second reminds of the great responsibility and consequences of our Jewish heritage and commitment to Hashem’s ways. The brechot and kellalot are reminders of awesome relationship with Hashem. As we continue yet another week in quarantine we pray that just as we conclude the reading of Sefer Vayikrah with the words Chazak Chazak Vnizchazak so too may we be strengthened with these very same sentiments this weekend and beyond.

Chazak Chazak Vnizchazak

Good Shabbos
Rabbi A. M. Abramson

To all those who are not well as well as those worldwide with this virus. We mention their names at each Torah reading and think about them in our private tefillos. Let Hashem hear our tefillos on their behalves, and all have a speedy recovery. If there is a choleh that needs a misheberach, please email their name to anshemotele@sbcglobal.net .
Since we are not at shul with Torah readings, in your private shmone esrai, you can include in the “Refaeinu” paragraph a special tefilla for the cholim that you have in mind.
