Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach from Rabbi Arnow 4/26/2024

Dear Kol Rinah Family,

My sermon from last Shabbat about my few days in Israel earlier in April 
is here.  

I hope you've been having a good Passover so far.  While I did feel a measure of calm settle in once the seder began, there's still been a lasting heaviness this week, especially with the turmoil on college campuses.  
One of the more thoughtful pieces I've read about what's happening on campuses comes from someone who teaches at Columbia University.  And here's a longish article from the New Yorker that gives some flavor and texture to what's happening at Columbia.  

Here's the full service schedule for the coming days.  

Tonight at 6pm, join me for an abbreviated Kabbalat Shabbat (abbreviated because we don't do a full Kabbalat Shabbat during Passover) and Shabbat Ma'ariv.  

Candle lighting is at 7:31pm.  

Saturday morning we'll start at 9am.  Services will include Hallel and a chapter from the Song of Songs.  I'll be teaching Torah Talk at about 10:20am, where we'll be looking at the Song of Songs.  

I'll be speaking a little about the Song of Songs and what's been happening on college campuses.  

There's also Tot Shabbat starting at 10:45am.  

Shabbat ends at 8:33pm. 

Sunday morning, services will be on Zoom at 8am.  

At 4pm on Sunday on Zoom, Verein will have their second of four programs on biblical criticism, with Larry Friedman teaching on the historical books of the Hebrew Bible.  
Details and registration here.  

The seventh night/day of Passover begins Sunday night.  Candle lighting is at 7:33pm.  There will not be services that evening. 

Monday morning at 9am we'll have 7th day of Passover services, which include the reading of the Song at the Sea.  

Monday evening in person in the Sanctuary, at 6pm, we'll have mincha, ma'ariv and yizkor (yizkor especially for anyone who won't be able to make it the following morning.)  

Tuesday morning at 9am will be services for the 8th day of Passover.  Yizkor will be at about 11am.  

Passover ends Tuesday night at 8:36pm, but any chametz that I sold on your behalf will not become yours again until 9pm.  

Sunday, May 5 will be Mitzvah Day!  We need volunteers to help.  Details and signup to volunteer and to sign up to donate blood are 
all here.  

For more and collected Israel information, see this page on our website, as well as the Jewish Federation of St. Louis's Israel Resources page

Every Shabbat and festival morning, we are still reciting a 
prayer for the State of Israel, a prayer for Israel Defense Forces soldiers, and a prayer for hostages.  

May the one who makes peace in the heavens make peace over us, and over all Israel, and over all who dwell in the world.  

Shabbat shalom, wishing you a meaningful Passover, and see you in shul,
Rabbi Noah Arnow
