Greg and Marc started their rabbinical journey together over 20 years ago in London. Rabbi Greg Alexander is rabbi of Temple Israel in Cape Town, South Africa and has just finished a sabbatical with his family in New York City, where Greg and Marc spent some time together. In the week of Parshat Vayeitze and Jacob’s dream and the early days of the month of Kislev, they reflect on havruta, spiritual friendship, angels, dreams, light and ladders.
Saturday, July 24th, at 6:00 pm. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to celebrate Havdalah together, but it’s now safe and what was once routine is suddenly quite special – we are basking in the happiness of returning to what we previously took for granted!
Tisha B'av, the saddest day in Jewish history, the day that both Temples were destroyed, starts this Saturday night, July 17, beginning at 8:27 pm.
