As we conclude our reading this week of the Book of Leviticus with B’chukotai, we read about monetary gifts that must be made to the sanctuary because of vows or in gratitude for blessings. The portion stresses the importance of acting in support of our religious institutions. At Shabbat services last week we recognized a similar effort by honoring the participants in a new fundraising program, Temple Am Echad Visionaries.
At this week’s Shabbat service we continue honoring those who give of themselves to Temple, this time with the installation of our Men’s Club incoming board. The effort of our volunteers is essential in carrying out our Temple’s mission, to build a thriving spiritual home for Reform Judaism, and all which that entails, on the South Shore.
