Shabbat Ki-Teitzei 5780

 
Dear Friends,
 
This has been another tumultuous week, with events in Kenosha reverberating across the continent. My dvar Torah this week addresses matters of social unrest in Israel, and you will see that I take these issues seriously. Reader and viewer discretion is advised, as I tackle sensitive, adult material.

Every Friday in Elul, I’ll be sharing a clip of music for Selihot, the penitential prayers of the season, that Sephardim have already begun reciting. Click here for Yonatan Razel’s haunting melody to Adon Haselihot.

Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom, and as always good health 
 
Rabbi David Wise
