Shabbat Service and Torah Discussion — Parasha Nitzavim

  • The Chatham Synagogue 1536 County Route 28 Chatham Center, NY 12184 United States (map)

This week’s parasha is Nitzavim — Hebrew for "ones standing," is the 51st weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the eighth in the Book of Deuteronomy.

In the parasha, Moses told the Israelites that all the people stood before God to enter into the covenant, violation of which would bring on curses, but if they returned to God and heeded G-d's commandments, then God would take them back in love and bring them together again from the ends of the world. Moses taught that this Instruction was not beyond reach, and Moses put before the Israelites life and death, blessing and curse, and exhorted them to choose life by loving G-d and heeding the commandments.

The Shabbat service begins at 9:30 am.
The Torah discussion begins at approximately 10:30 am.

Shabbat services typically end around noon with a kiddush.
