Shabbat Shalom from Rabbi Arnow 5/3/2024 5

Dear Kol Rinah Family,

Amidst the end of Passover, I know many of us were paying attention to happenings on college campuses.  

Jay Michaelson's article in the Forward was thoughtful and helpful to me.  I also found this conversation between Rabbi Donniel Hartman and Yossi Klein Halevi helpful in thinking about the important differences between antisemitism and anti-Zionism. 

If you have or know (or are!) college students, I'd love to hear from them and find a time to listen to their experiences if and when they're back in St. Louis, or on the phone or Zoom.  Please put me in touch. 

Tonight at 6pm, join me for an a cappella Kabbalat Shabbat and Ma'ariv.  

Candle lighting is at 7:38pm.  

Saturday morning we'll start at 9am.  I'll be teaching Torah Talk at about 10:10am, and kiddush will follow services.  

Shabbat ends at 8:41pm. 

Sunday is Mitzvah Day from 11:30am-1:30pm!  Details and signup to volunteer and to sign up to donate blood are all here.  It's going to be a great event for people of all ages.  Don't miss it! 

Later on Sunday, at 3pm, is the 
annual community Yom HaShoah commemoration, this year at Shaare Emeth.  

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, begins Sunday evening, May 5 and continues through Monday, May 6.  Sunday evening is the time to light the yellow candle that was delivered with your Purim mishloach manot.  
Here is a meditation to read when you light your candle.   

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 and see you in shul,
Rabbi Noah Arnow
