WELCOMING SHABBAT

Shabbat is more than a day of refraining from worldly activity.

When experienced to its spiritual fullest, its holiness enlightens all other days of the week.

We invite you to enhance your Shabbat with these words of Torah.

 

Parshas Shlach

“[The Medrash Rabba states] ‘Nothing in this world is as beloved (chaviv) to HaShem as sheluchei mitzva — people who are sent on a mission to do a mitzva — who give their all in order to accomplish their mission.’

 

The Chiddushei HaRim… say that each one of us can fill this beloved role of being a shli’ach mitzva [by viewing] ourselves as having been sent to this world with the express purpose of carrying out the will of HaShem — and to conduct ourselves accordingly…

 

‘Every person is created to do a tikun (a task that improves the world) for which he is uniquely qualified, and which only he can do.'”
