Parashat Ki Tisa 5782 / פָּרָשַׁת כִּי תִשָּׂא

Read on 19 February 2022 / 18 Adar I 5782.

Parashat Ki Tisa is the 21st weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.

Ki-Tisa (“When You Elevate”) opens as God tells Moses to collect a half-shekel donation from all Israelites and to anoint the Mishkan (Tabernacle), its vessels, and the priests. The Israelites worship the golden calf and Moses breaks the tablets. Moses beseeches God to forgive, and returns with a second set of tablets. [1]

We have added a special Hebrew reading crash course for those students not adept in reading Hebrew. It will be from 9:20am to 9:50 am before the regular sessions.

The first session will focus on Hebrew reading and prayers. We will read from the week's Torah portion using a Chumash and an online site. Besides the main prayers used in our services, we will also learn Torah and Haftarah blessings.

The second session will be a general learning session of that weekly sedrah/portion. We will also discuss notable Jewish personalities, from celebrities to prophets and kings. There will also be special topics such as gossip and evolution.

Third Module: Chapter 4 - Holidays

Miller Intro to Judaism Program

If you're thinking of converting to Judaism: Completion of the Intro Program fulfills the learning requirements for conversion of the Rabbinical Assembly of America. Once you finish the course requirements and secure a sponsoring rabbi, you are eligible to become officially part of the Jewish People.

If you're already Jewish: Whether you were born Jewish but never quite learned what it’s all about, you’re back after a long hiatus, or you’re just looking for a deeper understanding of your heritage, most of us could use a bit of a refresher. Jews from all walks of life enroll in the program: from people who had a Jewish day school education to those whose strongest connection was the annual box of matza on the kitchen counter.

More details to follow. Please let us know if you're interested. Application is attached below or reply with request for more information

The 26th Annual

Shabbat Across America and Canada

is March 4, 2022!

On one special night, tens of thousands of North American Jews will come together in spiritual unison with Jews across the continent and with thousands of years of tradition. Now is your chance to be counted in this campaign that encourages Jews of all backgrounds to come together and celebrate what unifies us all: The Shabbat.

Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 and heeding the recommendation of medical professionals to forego large indoor gatherings, NJOP is not planning our usual, in-person Shabbat Across America and Canada celebration in 2022. Instead, we will be inviting people to bring Shabbat Across America and Canada home, focusing on individuals, couples and families, to celebrate in their homes on March 4, 2022.

Stay tuned for further details!
