Shabbat Balak 5781

Parshat Balak is most famous for its four-legged character. A Torah portion with a talking donkey should certainly be ripe for creative interpretation! As you read this week’s portion, see if you can find the connection to these songs:
The late Chris Cornell and Soundgarden
For King and Country
Pat Benatar
Blind Melon reconstituted with new vocalist
The ultimate New Yorker, Billy Joel
Classic Carlos Santana
Now that we are coming back to shul in person, I will be revealing the connections in the break between Minhah and Ma’ariv. Join us in person in the sanctuary, or virtually on the livestream, at PM.
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom, and as always, good health,  
Rabbi David Wise
