Shabbat at WJC ~ June 22nd-23rd

Shabbat Hukkat

The portion begins with the peculiar case of the red heifer. Immediately following, we learn of Miriam’s death. The people complain about not having water, and Moses responds angrily. Aaron also dies, and his son Eleazar becomes the High Priest, only to face attacking snakes which he wards off using a gigantic copper snake pendant.

10:45am: Youth Services ~ 1st – 6th Grade, Library
In this week’s Parasha, Hukkat, we read how God commanded Moshe to speak to the rock to get water. Instead, Moshe hit the rock. God tells him that since he didn’t follow the directions he will not lead the Jewish people into Israel. In Youth Services we will explore this story further and play an “instruction following” game.
