“This is definitely a congregation like no other.
It is a close 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 Sidra contains the shattering episode of B’nai Yisrael’s idolatry with the Golden Calf. After miscalculating Moshe’s length of stay atop Sinai, the people demanded a more tangible god-figure. They force Aharon, the High Priest who is devoted to G-d, to craft one.

When Moshe sees the idol, he pleads with G-d not to destroy this stiff-necked, stubborn nation, and rushes down the mountain in order to quell the rebellion against G-d. Three thousand idolaters fall in the abortive rebellion.

After fashioning a second set of stone tablets to replace those which were shattered upon first glimpsing the Golden Calf, Moshe ascends Sinai to receive the Covenant of G-d, anew. Again he spends forty days and nights atop the mountain. When he re-enters the camp, his face is radiant from his encounter with G-d.

Shabbat Parah: Numbers 19:1-22 is read on the Shabbat immediately following Shushan Purim. These verses deal with the Red Heifer used in the spiritual purification process at the time of the Holy Temple. This issue is important at this season of the year, since in looking forward to Passover, every Jew is careful to maintain spiritual purity in order to partake in the holiday offerings. Many authorities hold that this reading is a Torah precept.
