This Week's Note From the Rabbi

This Shabbat - 17 Iyar, 5784 • May 25, 2024 we read the portion of Behar in the Book of Vayikra. This portion introduces the Mitzvah of the Sabbatical year which is observed in the Land of Israel. Each seventh year, all the fields in Israel are not to be worked on, as the entire Land of Israel lies fallow in observance of Shemitah. The yield of the land is considered holy and was to be collected by the poor and also by undomesticated animals, who were roaming the land. The Torah refers to the seventh year as a year of Shabbat for G‑d, thus the name given is Sabbatical year. This Mitzvah is observed in our time as well.

This Shabbat is Erev Lag B'Omer, when we celebrate the Yahrtzeit and life of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the great sage in the times of the Mishnah and author of the Zohar. The joy of the day is already felt throughout the entire Shabbat.

This Shabbat we will be celebrating together, after the Shabbat morning service, with a special and memorable Lox Kiddush. The Kiddush is in honor of Fred Shporer's Yahrtzeit, which falls on Lag B'Omer. This year it comes on Sunday, May 26th, which is the 18th of Iyar. This special Kiddush is being lovingly sponsored by Gary and Rand DeFilipp.
