Shabbat morning  תפילת שבת 

July 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT

Ahavat Olam Synagogue welcomes everyone to join us on line via Zoom in thoughtful, moving Shabbat morning prayers on July 10, 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) — a double portion this week — is Matot / Masei (Numbers 30:2-32:42, 33:1-36:13). There’s a lot to struggle with here. Moses demands genocide in the battle against the Midianites; the Children of Israel prepare for their conquest of Canaan, and the Eternal defines for them what each tribe’s territory will be. The daughters of Zelophedad receive their inheritance — but with restrictions: they must marry within their father’s tribe.
