This week's 10-Minute Torah (09/21/2019): "Parashat Ki Tavo"- https://www.modernrabbistephen.com/single-post/2019/09/18/This-weeks-10-Minute-Torah-09212019-Parashat-Ki-Tavo From Rabbi Dr. Joseph Gelberman: Live Courageously Courage, like art, demands practice. No challenge need not dismay us. If we practice trusting life, we become equipped with the resources we need to overcome the tyranny of fear that claims our joy. All we basically need is to start with one gesture of faith as a token of this acceptance. Each little act strengthens the next. Courage is confidence and security which we build into ourselves by accepting challenges, gradually giving up our dependencies and welcoming new avenues to test out our growth. Courage requires the wisdom not to thrash around alone with frantic stoicism, but rather to build with the Master Builder. SELICHOT SERVICE
The Torah Club invites you to join us for Selichot service on Saturday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the home of Rabbi and Mrs. Stephen Epstein in Tuscany Hills. Please come join us for this short 25 minute service that will start with Havdalah and commences the Jewish traditional High Holidays Season. Dessert to follow. In the Sephardic tradition, recital of Selichot in preparation for the High Holidays begins on the second day of the Hebrew month of Elul. In the Ashkenazic tradition, it begins on the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah Selichot prayers are usually recited between midnight and dawn. Some recite it at night after the 'Arvit service or in the morning before the Shacharit service due to the convenience of synagogue attendance at these times. The Torah Club welcomes all who want to participate. Please contact Sherry Beth Reiter, President of the Canyon Lake Torah Club, if you have any questions or want to reserve a place at the service.
