After Birkat HaMazon Learning this Shabbat: "Personal Status and Jewish Leadership"


After Birkat HaMazon Learning this Shabbat: "Personal Status and Jewish Leadership"
with Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Shabbat Naso, May 18, approx. 1:30
Congregation Netivot Shalom - netivotshalom.org

This week's Torah reading, Naso, discusses the "Sotah," the Priestly Blessing, and the "Nazir." The Sotah is a woman suspected of adultery by her husband and who undergoes the trial of "bitter water" (Num. 5:11-31). The Priestly blessing (Num.6:22-26) is offered by the children of Aaron to the Israelite people. The Nazir is a Jew who takes a temporary ascetic vow aspiring to a higher level of holiness (Num. 6:1-21). 

Can today's leaders learn anything relevant for our times from these biblical models? Join this conversation about the burdens and blessings of status!
