Dear RTPV family,
Water, sustainer of life and important for purification rituals, figures into many of the events and commandments in this weeks Torah portion, Chukat. As you read the parasha (found here), how many different scenes do you find that involve water? During the service we will explore how water affects the lives of people everywhere, both physically and spiritually.
Also this week we are very excited to formally welcome Josh DeHerrera-Ortiz, grandson of Kathy Kinzel, as a member of the Jewish people. Water also played an important role in Josh’s conversion to Judaism. We hope you will join us as we mark this very special occasion.
Our Shabbat service is at 8:00 PM, followed by a desert Oneg and celebratory schmoozing.
Rabbis Altarescu and Levy
