Congregation Bet Haverim
You are invited to attend our Zoom Shabbat morning services. We are reading Torah these days, but from the Chumash or online texts from the safety of our own homes. The advantage of this for those of us who don't feel as confident reading Hebrew, especially Hebrew without vowels, is we can use texts that have vowels and even transliteration to read from at the home bima. And if you'd like to chant a Torah portion, Carrie Shepard is available to help you with that.
The bible.ort.org website is really useful. It provides resources to study the Torah portions, hear the melodies, read from the Prophets, learn the Torah blessings, and read summaries of each portion.
This is the perfect way to prepare for a reading if you don't have a Chumash at home and also use all the many supports to get you comfortable with the text. If you would like to borrow a Chumash, contact the office and they will arrange this for you.
I have revised our Torah readers SignUp page to include all the readings through the end of July. Take a look. Choose a portion that calls out to you. And join us for Shabbat service. Bet Haverim's weekly email update includes the Zoom link for Shabbat services.
All the very best to you,
