Current/Upcoming Events

Dear RTPV Community,

This week’s parasha, Lech Lecha, begins the story of Abram and Sarai, whose names will later be changed to Abraham and Sarah.  Abram, after his father dies, is called at the age of 75 by God to “go forth to a new land” and begin a new people.  When his nephew Lot is attacked and taken captive by an enemy army, Abram enlists a group of 318 soldiers to fight and free Lot, who thus becomes the first Jewish War Veteran.  You can read the parasha here.
We hope you will join us Friday night for services at 8 PM followed by a delicious Oneg sponsored by Lisa Keogh in honor of her parents’ yahrzeits.
See below for a list of upcoming events.
