Mishlei/Proverbs   6pm













"These are the judgments (Mishpatim) that you shall place before them". It is pointed out the term for "placing" used here, namely Tasim, is used exclusively for setting food down for a meal. Based on this, Rashi explains that God is telling Moses that when presenting the Torah to the people, the presentation has to be as orderly as setting a table. 

Rabbi Munk expounds on the term for "before them" - lifnayhem, as specifically referring to the entire population and not only the elites. He goes on to say that it is critically important for as many people to be in the know regarding halacha. "Everyone must be familiar with the rights and duties of the individual towards his fellowman and society."
Perhaps Rashi was anticipating Rabbi Munk, meaning that in order to accomplish this goal, the Torah has to be disseminated with maximum accessibility. 
We have made it a hallmark at TriBeCa Synagogue throughout the decades, to present all aspects of Torah with the goal of edifying as wide a swath of our local Jewish community as possible
Tonight, tomorrow and Saturday is Rosh Chodesh Adar which heralds the season of Simcha
Saturday morning we read the first of the 4 special readings leading up to Passover. This week is called Shekalim which talks about the ritual of everyone  donating a half shekel to fund public sacrifices. It was to be given on the first of the month of Adar.
TriBeCa Synagogue is thrilled to announce the birth of a daughter to Laurel Rom and Josh Dugan this week! Their girl will be named tomorrow morning at services and they will be sponsoring coffee and Danish in celebration.
Starting Tuesday February 23 at 7pm
Siddur/Jewish Prayer
All those who have been in our Hebrew Reading Classes over the last few months are ready to learn how to pray like a pro! Join them if you need the same skill set.
Will cover Jewish concepts in prayer, navigating the prayer book and understanding the structure of the service.
Purim planning is in process with the holiday beginning Thursday night February 25. There will most likely be both an outdoor and indoor option for the Megillah reading that night. The reading will also be accessible on zoom. More details to follow the beginning of next week.
