Our October 2017 service

Our litury and torah study text are online! We celebrated Shemini Atzeret, the water drawing/pouring ceremony and throughout the service explored the story of Bereshit, where sky was made to separate the waters above from the waters below before Elohim named sky Shamayim. In our torah study, we looked at these verses and at its source text.

Otter premiered a new song created from texts attributed to Hillel the Elder in Talmud, Sukkah 53a

If you come to my house
lyrics drawn from Sukkah 53 a, attributed to Hillel
music by Karen Escovitz

אִם תָּבוֹא אֶל בַּיתִי
אֲנִי אָבוֹא אֶל בַּיתֶךָ
אִם תָּבוֹאְי אֶל בּיתי
אֲנִי אָבוֹא אֶל בְּתַיך
אִם אֲנִי כָּאן הַכֹּל כָּאן
וְאִם אֵינִי כָּאן מִי כָּאן

Im tavo el beiti, ani avo el beitecha,
Im tavo el beiti, ani avo el beiteich
V’im ani kan, hakol kan. V’im eini kan, mi kan?
(x2)

If you come to my house, I will come to your house
If you come to my house, I will come to your house
and if I am here, everything is here
and if I were not here, who would be here?
