Kabbalah Thought for this week:

"When life appears to be calm and waters still, we must realize that The Creator is carrying all of our judgments for us. We should use thesemomentsto repent and proactively uproot our negative traits. We should intensify and/or renew our commitments to the spiritual path before the weight of judgments becomes too great to bear and they come crashing down upon us without warning."




A very poignant prayer that gives us comfort:

Turn an ordinary Friday night into something extraordinary with Shabbat Across America and Canada!

Mark your calendar for Friday night, March 1st! Join hundreds of synagogues across the continent taking part in a renowned Jewish event to celebrate what unifies all Jews — Shabbat! Everyone is invited, so no matter your age, or if you are a single, couple or family, large or small - we want you right there with us! 

Following the events of October 7th in Israel, the world’s Jews need to unite now more than ever! Many reports have shown that following the attacks, there has been a reawakened sense of Jewish pride and willingness to participate in Jewish rituals and experiences. This year, we have a historic opportunity to bring people back into our synagogues and Jewish centers like never before, for Shabbat Across America and Canada, the original Shabbat unity event. 

That’s the magic of Shabbat Across America and Canada, now in its 28th year. By participating in this continent-wide event, you will enable those in your community to share the Shabbat experience with thousands of North American Jews.

Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to strengthen the Jewish identity and pride of those in your community by inviting them to join your extended family and celebrate Shabbat at Shabbat Across America and Canada on Friday night, March 1, 2024. NJOP will be happy to share many Shabbat resources to enhance your program.
