Special Shabbat – January 21

Each year, we listen to the stories of being slaves in Egypt, of Moses and the Israelites hurried exodus, and Miriam's song after crossing the Sea of Reeds. We read Parashat Yitro and retell the story of what happened at Sinai, the thunder and lightning, the blast of a horn, the trembling of the mountain. This year we stand together and hear what our ancestors heard as we listen to the chanting of the Ten Commandments from our Ahavat Torah Scroll. Together as a TKE community, we renew the covenant of Sinai on Friday, January 21 at 7:15 p.m. The special Shabbat service will be in-person and live-streamed.
