Elul Reflections: Setting Aside a Portion

IMG_7355 (1)Our CSA shares are nourishing both the bodies and the souls of our congregation!  Each week, congregants pick up a box of organic vegetables to bring home and one share is set aside, so that a group can cook up the food for congregants who might feel supported with a meal and some TLC (join the team Wednesdays at 5pm in the RS kitchen!).  In this week’s Torah portion, God instructs the Israelites to enjoy their bounty and also to set aside a portion and to give thanks.  In this month of Elul, may we consider the bounty for which we are grateful, and also the portions or ourselves, our energies, our tzedakah, that we would like to set aside for our community.  Learn about Caring Community opportunities here.
