Wisdom & Coffee:
Collective Punishment in Jewish Thought: Pouring Out Our Wine Cups – 9:30 a.m. in Hermelin Hall
Reflecting on Israel’s military response to Hamas’s atrocities on October 7 and the subsequent deaths of thousands of Gazans, we are challenged to ask the question: does Judaism support the idea of collective punishment? Gather some materials for your Passover Seder by joining Rabbi Aaron Starr for this Wisdom and Coffee conversation. Wisdom and Coffee provides an opportunity for learning and conversation on a Shabbat morning that is entirely separate from our prayer service. Coffee and a special breakfast will be served. Wisdom and Coffee is generously sponsored by Shelley and Joel Tauber.

Family Shabbat Experiences – 10:30 a.m. – Brodsky Family Tikvah Chapel
Join us every Shabbat morning for songs, prayer, games, challah and grape juice snack, and fun with your Shul friends. Open to the congregation and the community. Activities for kids ages 0-12.

Please Note: There is no Shabbat lunch this week.
Like so many of you, we have begun preparing our very large synagogue home for Passover. Don’t worry you will still be able to get your last bites of seven layer cake at the Kiddish table.

Shabbat Minchah – 1:00 p.m. – Bernstein Chapel
Join us in the Bernstein Chapel for a very quick Torah service. Please stay at shul for a few more minutes to help those in mourning say Kaddish for their loved ones.

Shabbat ends at 9:06 p.m.

Havdalah with Rabbi Yoni Dahlen at 9:16 p.m. – On Zoom only
Help make a minyan for those saying Kaddish as we say goodbye to Shabbat, and welcome in a sweet new week. Bring your favorite beverage and join On Zoom
