3,333 years ago, something happened on a mountain.

And since then, our lives have not been the same.

The name of the mountain was Mount Sinai. The people standing at the foot of the mountain came from different tribes, styles and social classes.

Yet, just before they received the Torah, they became one nation.

No longer a collection of people. Rather, a family; brothers and sisters, united in faith in one G‑d.

Last week, on Thursday night, something happened again on a mountain. On Mount Meron, 45 people lost their lives in a tragic event.

And suddenly, again, we remembered how we are one family.

Gone were the differences in background, political affiliation, lifestyle, or even our level of Jewish commitment.

We all cried together.

Thinking about this week's Torah portion, the name "Behar" jumped out at me.
"Behar", at the mountain.

We visited the mountain back 3,333 years ago. But we never left. Despite the many superficial differences between us, we are still one.

We are family.

Let's celebrate together-- on the mountain.

We will hear the Ten Commandments, enjoy dairy treats and receive the Torah anew for the 3,334th time.

--At the ‘Shavuot Garden Party’ at 5:30pm on Monday, May 17th.

We would love to celebrate together with you, our dear family, Jewish sisters & brothers.

RSVP so we can prepare delightful dairy dinner & desserts for you to feast on!

---------

This week we conclude the 3rd book of the Torah!

Chazak, Chazak V’nitchazek- be strong, be strong and may we be strengthened- from the Torah and from each other, as we explore and experience together.

We also bless the new month of Sivan, since on Wednesday we will celebrate Rosh Chodesh (first of the month).

Talking about blessing a new month- If you’d like to get some free positivity postcards, there are still some available- pass on a good word and extra kindness in the month of Iyar.

Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom & Chodesh Tov!
