Torah Portion of the Week

Exodus 25:1-27:19; 1 Kings 5:26-6:13; Matthew 13:1-53

Commentary by Mark Huey Click here

Just a reminder Eitz Chaim does not “pass the plate” we have a tzedakah box at the back of the sanctuary for tithes and donations.

2 Corinthians 8:3-4 For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints.
Some early believers suffered persecution that put them in a serious financial hardship. They relied on the help of the rest of the Body of Messiah which was provided with joy. The Body has grown to what it is today and more than ever some believers need the help of others. Supporting the saints financially is a biblical mandate that translates into great blessings for both those who give and those who receive, not to mention those reached with the Gospel and saved as a result. Who wouldn’t want to be part of a biblical win/win/win situation? ~Olivier Melnick

Every Shabbat we are blessed to have MORE VISITORS join us for oneg. Because fellowship is an important part of Eitz Chaim’s ministry, we are asking ALL MEMBERS and REGULAR ATTENDEES TO PARTICIPATE BY BRINGING A DISH, OR TWO, to Shul on Shabbat. Dairy parve only (no meat, chicken or crustaceans) See detailed guidelines on our website.

PLEASE LET OUR VISITORS AND SENIOR CITIZENS GO TO THE HEAD OF THE LINE. ALL CHILDREN SHOULD GO THROUGH THE LINE WITH THEIR PARENTS PLEASE!
