Dear RTPV Community,
In this week’s parasha, Vayetze, Jacob is fleeing the wrath of his brother Esau and stops to rest.  He dreams:  angels of God are ascending and descending a ladder that reaches to the heavens. When we wakes, Jacob exclaims, “Surely God was in this place and I did not know it…How awesome is this place!”.
Jacob discovered an awesome place where he wasn’t looking for one. That can happen to anyone, anywhere. Even at RTPV, where through song, prayer and community we together help to create an awesome place. You can read the Torah portion here.
Hope to see you at 8:00 for a spiritual service followed by tasty treats and amusing schmoozing. Please bring something to share for the Oneg.
Check out the announcements below.
