Parshat Beha’alotcha inspired
our Jewish Healing Flags

Jewish Healing Flags
On Shabbat morning, June 25, we read Parshat Beha’alotcha, which inspired the design of our new Jewish Healing Flags from Nepal. In this parsha, Miriam is stricken with a skin disease, and Moses prays for her, El Na Refah Na La, (Please Gd, please heal her), the Torah’s first prayer for healing. Our Jewish Healing flags feature this prayer and ask for healing for Body, Heart, Mind and Soul.

Blog – Fair Trade Shabbat Drash

Cocoa PodsHope you’ll be inspired by this drash delivered by Carole Baden, on Fair Trade Shabbat 2016. Carole is a long-time member of Congregation Netivot Shalom in Berkeley, CA, currently serving on the Board of Directors.
 
What makes fair trade so aligned with Jewish values? All we need to do is look at our parshah. Chapter 19, verse 13 in Kedoshim states, “Lo-ta‘ashok et re‘acha velo tigzol lo-talin peulat sakhir itcha ad-boker” (“Do not oppress your neighbor or rob him”).
