Thanksgiving Baskets Project

Thanksgiving Food Baskets Project

Once again this year, Temple B'rith Kodesh will be helping those less fortunate in our community by providing Thanksgiving Baskets.
We will be supplying complete baskets including turkeys to 33 TEMPRO families and 50 Baskets without meat (we have had a gracious donor who will be supplying Halal meat for our baskets from an approved site) for No One Left Behind,- recently resettled refugee families from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Baskets will need to be brought back to TBK on Sunday November 18th at the start of Religious School. We will be collecting them at the South Portico

Parashat Vayishlach

In this Torah portion, God tells Jacob to return home. Worried that his brother Esau will kill him, Jacob divides his clan into two camps, so at least some will survive in case of a fight. Jacob sleeps alone in the desert and is awoken by an angel who wrestles him through the night. Jacob survives and is blessed by the angel and renamed Israel. Jacob meets his brother and, surprisingly, they embrace. Dinah, Jacob’s daughter, is raped by Shekhem, who then proposes to Jacob that he marry her. Shimeon and Levi brutally murder Shekhem and his clan. Rachel has another child, whom she and Jacob name Benjamin.
