Ahavat Olam

A progressive synagogue in Vancouver, BC, Canada

Shabbat morning, January 9, 2021 תפילת שבת

Ahavat Olam Synagogue welcomes everyone to join us on line via Zoom in thoughtful, moving Shabbat morning prayers on January 9 2021 at 10:00 am, mostly sung, much in Hebrew, some in English, some in the language of the heart and in the speech of the angels.

Please let us know at info@ahavat-olam.ca if you wish to attend. We will get back to you with the information you’ll need to log in to the online Zoom meeting.

The weekly parshah (Torah portion) is Shemot (Exodus 1:1 – 6:1). In this portion, a “new Pharaoh” arises over Egypt, one who “does not know Joseph”, does not know history, hates and fears his immigrant refugee family and descendants, and thinks the way to “deal shrewdly” with people is to brutalize and enslave them. At a time when systemic racism is, perhaps, beginning at least to become perceptible to the dominant culture, this is — had better be — a biggie for us.

If you have questions, please write to info@ahavat-olam.ca.
