Some of you may have noticed that this week there is a discrepancy between the calendar for Jews in the Diaspora, and the calendar for Israel and for Reform Jews in Diaspora (who follow the Israel calendar.) For an explanation of why there’s a difference, check out this article by Ben Dreyfus.
If you are wondering what YOU should read, the easy answer is “ask your rabbi.” The senior rabbi of your congregation is the “Marah d’atrah,” the final word on the schedule and practice in your shul. If you don’t have a rabbi, well, get one!
Crossing the Reed Sea by Rabbi Amy Scheinerman
On Loving Our Neighbors by Rabbi Rachel Barenblat
You Are What You Wear by Rabbi Elyse Goldstein
Whatever you learn this week, I wish you a Shabbat shalom!
