Gut Shabbes! (Vayikra)

This week, we begin the book of Vayikra with the Torah reading of the same name. Whenever we start a new book of the Torah, I feel strengthened, in the same way as I do when we finish the previous book and say aloud, ‘Chazak, Chazak, v’Nitchazek!’. It feels as if I’m turning over a new leaf. It’s also the first Shabbes of the new month- Nisson- so change is definitely in the air. As we come closer and closer to Peysekh, let’s think about our own, personal ‘Mitzrayim’, and resolve to free ourselves from it…

This week, Shabbes candles should be lit at 7:14 PM in London, and Shabbes goes out tomorrow at 8:25 PM. When lighting your Shabbes candles, please remember Chaim Elozor ben Baila, Chashachana bas Bryna, Gila Rus bas Soroh and Shai bas Odeya for a refuah shleimah. Thank you, and gut Shabbes!
