Current/Upcoming Events

Dear RTPV Community,

In this weeks parasha, Vayetzei, we read:  Jacob awoke from his dream and said, “this is the place of Adonai and I did not know it…How awesome is this place, this is none other then the house of God and this is the gate of heaven.”

Is a particular geographic spot the “house of God” or can the words refer to anytime or place we are aware of the sparks of the divine? You can read the parasha here as you ponder that question.  

We hope you will join us this Shabbat at 6:30 PM for a Family friendly service followed by a “kosher style” meat potluck dinner (fish and eggs OK; no dairy products,except for dessert).  Please bring an entree, side, salad or dessert to share.

See the announcements below for upcoming events. 


Rabbis Levy and Altarescu
