CPT Annual Meeting
One Step at a Time!
Dear P’nai Tikvah community,
It has been a wild ride the past years, but Congregation P’nai Tikvah has held on with your encouragement and support! I hope you’re as excited as we are to come together as a community at our virtual Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 26th at 11:00 AM (PST). Our gathering will be an opportunity to see old friends and new, and hear all the things we have accomplished this past year. We are asking for your help in shaping the new year when we will gather in person as well as continue to build wider virtual participation, as an even more creative community.
All current CPT members (whether local or virtual) will have the opportunity to elect our Board of Directors. New folks or those who join/rejoin for the coming year will also, of course, have a vote.
You can help to raise awareness of the important work we do by inviting your friends and colleagues. As we will gather virtually, we can host an unlimited number of people at this free event. Don’t let geography or time zone stop you!
Jewlicious Learners Updates
Jewlicious Learners Create Personal Mezuzot
“Jewlicious Learners” of Congregation P’nai Tikvah each made a personal mezuzah in a session focusing on the “Sh’ma “ and the “V’Ahavta” and their background and importance in Judaism. Observing where mezuzot are placed, learning how they are affixed, and discovering the history of mezuzot, the students worked with natural cases that were hewn from downed tree branches and branded with a “Shin” (the traditional letter on most mezuzot, the first letter of the phrase “Shamor D’lattot Yisraeil”…the Guardian of the doorways of Israel).
The youngsters each cut out the passages that are on the klaf, rolled and inserted the paper and, while their klaf was not Kosher, they learned what it takes for a scribe to make a Kosher klaf. Mason recognized that the first paragraph of the klaf is found in his upcoming Bar Mitzvah portion, V’Etchanan; and he masterfully chanted it. The group realized that these are words that are part of the prayer service, found them in the Siddur, and chanted them as well. The group then individualized their mezuzot with beautiful dried flowers. The session was topped off by learning the “Likboa Mezuzah” bracha and reviewing the “Shehechiyanu”, so each student could place a mezuzah on the doorpost of their bedroom.
