Leviticus 9:1-11:47


The Laws of Kashrut

Then Moses told Aaron’s remaining sons to make an offering to God. Afterwards, God spoke to Moses and to Aaron, telling them to state the following to the Israelite people:

These are the creatures that you may eat from among all the land animals: any animal that has true hooves, with clefts through the hoofs, and that chews the cud, you may eat. The following animals who either chew the cud or have true hooves, you shall not eat: the camel, the rabbit, the hare, and the pig. You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses. They are unclean to you.

From the waters, seas and rivers, you may eat all creatures except what does not have fins and scales. They are an abomination to you. You shall not eat of their flesh.......


You shall not make yourselves unclean by eating these things. For I the Lord am your God: you shall sanctify yourselves and be holy, for I am holy. For I, the Lord God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God, you shall be holy for I am holy.


Parashat Shmini Discussion Questions

  1. Why does what we eat make a difference to God?
  2. Do you ever think about what you are eating as unclean or clean? Why or why not?


  1. What does God mean by proclaiming, “You shall be holy for I am holy?” How is God holy? How are you holy?

At “A Night Out On The Town,” guests will stroll down memory lane as they view iconic fashions from the past in this exciting fashion retrospective that spans decades. The event will take place at Temple Isaiah, a midcentury building in downtown Palm Springs. Guests are encouraged to attend wearing their finest vintage apparel. After they enjoy a glass of wine, bubbly or beverage and an assortment of sweets in an outdoor pavilion, they will be escorted to the spacious and stunning 1000-seat Bochner Auditorium where they can view this amazing fashion production while observing social distance protocols in accordance with state and local health guidelines. The alternative will be a completely outside event if mandated by state guidelines.


Following the show, guests will be able to participate in a lively Q &A with celebrity stylist Neil Cohen, who will answer fashion questions and make predictions about the future of fashion. Guests will be able to shop before the show for great vintage, and after the show to purchase pieces from the show at the Mitchells Palm Springs Pop Up Shop. A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to Temple Isaiah.


Guided   Tours start on April 9th - April 16th


The guided tour of Temple Isaiah, a stunning architectural masterpiece, contrasts the E. Stewart Williams modernist-designed 1950s Al Liberman Chapel with the 1980s west-facing addition. The addition, originally conceived in 1971 by Donald Wexler and later in 1982 designed by David Christian to meet the growing needs of the congregation, has a magnificent panoramic window view of the San Jacinto Mountains. The Bochner Sanctuary features a colorful centerpiece ark by Israeli born sculptor and kinetic artist Yaacov Agam. The tour will include the history of sanctuary design and a Rabbi Rosenberg will speak briefly on how the pandemic reinvigorated religion and discussion to follow.
