Virtual Shabbat Links: March 13-14

Torah Talk for Ki Tissa
Understanding Fear and Community as a Cure

March 13-14, 2020
Ki Tissa

As was communicated in Rabbi Arnowitz’s weekly email, we will be hosting three virtual gatherings this weekend, which will feature our Assistant Rabbi candidate Rabbi Deena Cowans. We hope you will join us for some virtual community time.

Friday from 5:30-6:30pm 
WJC Kabbalat Shabbat
Use the link below to join us for a gathering to welcome Shabbat. This experience will include a meditation, singing and prayers to help heal us from the week that was and bring us into Shabbat with hope, peace and a sense of community. To join the meeting click on the following link at 5:25pm or later.

By Phone: 1-646-558-8656 • Meeting ID: 441 212 553

Saturday from 8:30-9:00pm 
Havdalah with WJC
Join us as Rabbi Cowans leads us in the traditional Havdalah ritual so that we can send out the sweetness of Shabbat together and prepare for the week to come.

By Phone: 1-646-558-8656 • Meeting ID: 439 047 601

Sunday from 10:00-11:30am 
Sermon and Q&A with Rabbi Cowans
This meeting will start at 10am with Rabbi Cowans delivering a sermon on Saturday’s parsha “Ki Tisa.” This will be in place of hearing her deliver the sermon on Saturday morning. Following the sermon Marty Marcus and Mia Mandel will conduct a Q&A similar to the ones we have been doing live for previous candidates. We hope you will join us to get to know Rabbi Cowans better and gauge how she might fit as a member of our clergy team.

It is too late to purchase a special havdalah candle for this coming Saturday night, but if you are interested in having one for next Saturday (we will likely be doing this ritual online again) please let Rabbi Arnowitz know and we will do everything we can to get you one.

Please note: The links for virtual minyan no longer work. We are working on a new solution since congregations everywhere are canceling their own daily minyan. We will hopefully have something up and running early next week.
