Virtual Shabbat - Temple Shalom

July 19th, 2024  at 7:30 PM


Those who focus only on the negative, tend to only see the curses in their lives. Focusing on the positive helps us learn from what is plaguing. 

 

It helps you to see the blessings even in the challenges you are facing in life. Sometimes you have to strain to see even a slightly positive aspect in your situation, but when you find it, grab on to it! Focus on it repeatedly, throughout the day, day after day, and in time, you may come to know the blessings hidden beneath it.

Numbers 22:2-25:9

 

Balak tells the story of the Moabite king Balak, who hires Balaam to curse the Israelites. Balaam’s donkey speaks along the way, and Balaam ends up blessing the Israelites. The portion ends with a story about Israelite men sinning with Moabite women and the stabbing of an Israelite and a Midianite. [1]

Summer Swelter Shabbat

 

Because of July’s record breaking heat in Palm Springs reaching 124 degrees, we have decided to not put anyone in harm's way having to drive to Temple for Shabbat services. Additionally, because of AC Cooling issues and costs, the board has authorized the following Shabbat services for July and August in-person Friday night Shabbat Services and Torah Study. They are: 

Our weekends together IN PERSON are JULY 26/27 and AUGUST 23/24:

FRIDAY, JULY 26: Shabbat services at 7:30 pm in the Warsaw Ballroom (downstairs).

SATURDAY, JULY 27: Nosh and Drash at 10:30 am in the Rabbi’s study.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 23: Shabbat services at 7:30 pm in the Warsaw Ballroom (downstairs). SATURDAY, AUGUST 24 : Nosh and Drash 10:30 am in the Rabbi’s study.

The other weekends please join us for Friday night Services broadcast on FACEBOOK & Saturday Nosh and Drash on ZOOM.

You can find these links in this week’s edition of the Shabbat-O-Gram. We will let you know if we have to make further adjustments, if the heat continues in the dangerous category.

Rabbi Rosenberg’s Topic:

On Parashat Balak:

Shabbat morning, July 19th is Nosh and Drash Torah study at 10:30am on Zoom. We will delve into Parashat Balak and discover some amazing lessons embedded in the text. 

Our 2:00pm Taste of Judaism class will start up again on Saturday, July 26th and on Zoom 

J-U also will feature What Do Jews Believe, taught by Rabbi Steven Rosenberg, Wednesday nights on Zoom, starting at 8:00pm.  

We are jammed packed with amazing programming, inspirational Shabbat services and uplifting Jewish cultural events. We are beginning to plan for the 2024/2025 season. Please send Rabbi your ideas for programs you would like to see at the Temple. 

Take a look through this week’s Shabbat-O-Gram to see the incredible amount of offerings we have here at Temple Isaiah. Our wonderful community is growing and we want you to be part of it!!

We are blessed with such a special congregation here at Temple Isaiah, may we continue to be the vital Center for Jewish Life throughout the Coachella Valley for many years to come. 

I am always available, if you would just like to visit for a while, either in person or by phone, video chat or text/email. Please feel free to get in touch with me.
