What A wonderful Mo’adim (Appointed Times) we have been enjoying! From Yom Teruah and the sound of the Shofar summoning us to get ready for His return. To Yom Kippur, where we recognize the perfect atonement of Yeshua and corporately confess our sins so as to secure our names are written in the Book of Life. And, this week as we welcomed the beautiful festival of Succoth, gathering in flimsy booths, waving the etrog and lulav joyously anticipating the triumphant return of our king at the final harvest. It has been a time of great fellowship and re-focusing our attention on kingdom things! This Shabbat, September 29th, we will be looking at the end days and what it will look like at the time of Yeshua’s return, and how we as the Bride are to be prepared for that day. WE WILL BE HAVING A POT-BLESS (BETTER THAN POT-LUCK!) ONEG, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR SOME GREAT FELLOWSHIP!
There are some exciting things happening at Or Chaim that you can get involved in. Torah Club will be starting on Shabbat, October 6th, in the fellowship room after Oneg If you are interested and haven’t already registered, contact Aaron Rich. Also, and we are really jazzed about this:
WANT TO LEARN BIBLICAL HEBREW? WANT TO DEVELOP A STRONG FOUNDATION TO READ AND WRITE BIBLICAL HEBREW - AND EVEN BE ABLE TO READ DIRECTLY FROM THE TORAH SCROLL? WE WILL BE OFFERING A CLASS STARTING ON SHABBAT MORNINGS (NOVEMBER 3RD) BEFORE SERVICE WHERE WE WILL LEARN HEBREW WITH THE ALEPH/BET AND CONTINUE THROUGH SEVERAL LESSONS TO BEGIN READING HEBREW SCRIPTURE. WE WILL BE USING THE FIRST HEBREW PRIMER, SO JOIN WITH US AND LET’S READ AND WRITE THE LANGUAGE OF SCRIPTURE! If you have any questions or are interested in participating, contact Kent Brown for information and cost of materials.
We look forward to seeing you on Shabbat! These are dangerous and exciting times, so let’s come together to worship God and exalt His name, pray for one another and our nation, and enjoy fellowship with one another!
Blessing and Shabbat Shalom!
