“This is definitely not a congregation like any other. It is a family… a very special family!” 
– Rabbi Eli B. Perlman –

 

Congregation Beit Shalom is a unique Conservative Congregation that is comprised of approximately 750 members. The difference between this and other congregations is that we are truly a family. We get together to pray, to learn, to laugh, to sing, to schmooze, and to eat. We study and watch movies together. We learn Torah and we share experiences in our lives. More importantly, when someone is in need, we help each other in ways that continue to inspire everyone.

This Shabbat coincides with Shemini Atzeret during which we will conduct Yizkor Services approximately at 11:00.

Shabbat Lech Lecha: Gen. 12.1-17.27.
Haftorah: Isaiah 40.27-41.16.

For Avram to be righteous, he must follow G-d, and put his well practiced idolatrous ways behind him. He is bidden by G-d to leave his homeland and to journey to Canaan. He takes Lot, his nephew, with him.

While Avram has every good intention to follow the word of G-d, he finds that it is not easy. Keeping G-d’s word in a human world proves to be quite a difficult challenge. From his own nephew who rebels against him, to his own wife’s barrenness and subsequent cruelty to the son of a concubine, Avram is assailed. He withstands these challenges and makes a covenant with G-d. As a symbol of the covenant of Avraham, Jews have been circumcising males at the age of eight days (or upon conversion to Judaism) ever since.
