Parshat Shemini refers to the 8th day following the 7 days of seclusion the kohanim observed before emerging to begin ministering to the tabernacle. With this day, centuries of temple Judaism began that took us from ancient society into the common era. 

Normally the number 8 connotes transcending nature but Rabbi Hirsch breaks it down further by explaining that 6 is the limited physical element and 7 is the "creative freedom of the spiritual element". And it is 8 that combines the first two components in total harmony which was achieved with the completion of the tabernacle. May we merit to see this harmony return speedily in our days!

This Shabbat is the 3rd of the 4 special readings when we read about the red heifer and the purification ritual for those who had come into contact with the dead. In temple times this was an important reminder to prepare oneself well in advance to be able to partake of the Passover sacrifice.

We bless the new month of Nisan this Shabbat and the molad will be this Friday at 4:36pm.

The Women's Study Group transitions to the Haggadah for the next few weeks and will meet right after kiddush.

Kiddush this weekend is sponsored by Dolores and Gordon Wine in Honor and Memory of the 146  women and men who lost their lives in the terrible Triangle ShirtWaist Factory Fire, March 25th 1911. Most of the victims were Jewish and lived on the Lower East Side.
