Genesis 1:1–6:8

G‑d creates the world in six days. On the first day He makes darkness and light. On the second day He forms the heavens, dividing the "upper waters" from the "lower waters." On the third day He sets the boundaries of land and sea, and calls forth trees and greenery from the earth. On the fourth day He fixes the position of the sun, moon and stars as timekeepers and illuminators of the earth. Fish, birds and reptiles are created on the fifth day; land animals, and then the human being, on the sixth. G‑d ceases work on the seventh day, and sanctifies it as a day of rest.

G‑d forms the human body from the dust of the earth, and blows into his nostrils a "living soul." Originally Man is a single person, but deciding that "it is not good that man be alone," G‑d takes a "side" from the man, forms it into a woman, and marries them to each other.

Adam and Eve are placed in the Garden of Eden, and commanded not to eat from the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil." The serpent persuades Eve to violate the command, and she shares the forbidden fruit with her husband. Because of their sin, it is decreed that man will experience death, returning to the soil from which he was formed, and that all gain will come only through struggle and hardship. Man is banished from the Garden.

Eve gives birth to two sons, Cain and Abel. Cain quarrels with Abel and murders him, and becomes a rootless wanderer. A third son, Seth, is born to Adam; Seth's eighth-generation descendant, Noah, is the only righteous man in a corrupt world.

Isaiah 42:5-21.

The haftorah of this week's reading opens with a statement by "the Almighty G‑d, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who laid out the earth and made grow from it." This echoes the Torah portion's recounting of the creation of the world in six days.

G‑d speaks to the prophet Isaiah, reminding him of his life's purpose and duty, namely that of arousing the Jewish people to return to being a light unto the nations, "To open blind eyes, to bring prisoners out of a dungeon; those who sit in darkness out of a prison."

The prophecy continues with a discussion regarding the Final Redemption, and the song that all of creation will sing to G‑d on that day. G‑d promises to punish all the nations that have persecuted Israel while they were exiled. The prophet also rebukes Israel for their errant ways, but assures them that they will return to the correct path and will be redeemed.


In the beginning G‑d created the heavens and the earth (1:1)

Said Rabbi Yitzchak: The Torah ought to have started with "This month shall be to you . . ." (Exodus 12:2), which is the first mitzvah commanded to the people of Israel. Why, then, does it begin with "In the beginning [G‑d created the heavens and the earth]"? . . . So that if the nations of the world say to Israel, "You are thieves, for having conquered the lands of the seven nations," they can reply to them: "The entire world is G‑d's; He created it, and He grants it to whoever He desires. It was His will to give it to them, and it was His will to take it from them and give it to us."

(Rashi, Genesis 1:1)

St Kilda Shule Thursday Lunch Club with David Southwick MP - Current Community Safety Challenges

Tuesday 22 October 2019

St Kilda shule ’Sing as One’

St Kilda shule 'Sing as One'
The Power of Song
Social media has been used to cause so much hatred and division
Using social media for love, unity, friendship and togetherness
700 people who have never met, singing one song in unison
Many voices. One message.
The response to the announcement of our multi-faith social music initiative "Sing As One" has, not surprisingly, exceeded the 600-person capacity at Government House.
Therefore, the event will move to St Kilda Shule, 12 Charnwood Grove, St Kilda, where we have capacity for almost 1000 people.
As a result of the change of venue, a few other changes have been necessary and I list them below.
The new time will be 8:00pm (with gates open up to an hour earlier to accommodate the expected crowd. Assume that it will conclude by 10:00pm. The change of time will allow us to better control the lighting in the Shule for the production (which will commence at around 9:00pm after the hour-long rehearsals)
The new venue will be St Kilda Shule, 12 Charnwood Grove, St Kilda (remember that parking is also available in St Kilda Road)
There will be a $25 charge per person to cover most of the production costs.
Ideally, you (and your friends) will have an interest in singing before registering for this event.
Ticketing opens now via until sold out. As this is an event open to the Victorian community, we expect that it will sell out quickly.

Exodus 33:12-34:26
G‑d agrees to Moses' request that His presence only dwell amongst the Jews. Moses requests to be shown G‑d's glory. G‑d agrees, but informs Moses that he will only be shown G‑d's "back," not G‑d's "face."

G‑d tells Moses to carve new tablets upon which G‑d will engrave the Ten Commandments. Moses takes the new tablets up to Mt. Sinai, where G‑d reveals His glory to Moses while proclaiming His Thirteen Attributes of Mercy.

G‑d seals a covenant with Moses, assuring him again that His presence will only dwell with the Jews. G‑d informs the Jewish people that He will drive the Canaanites from before them. He instructs them to destroy all vestiges of idolatry from the land, not to make molten gods, to refrain from making any covenants with its current inhabitants, to sanctify male firstborn humans and cattle, and not to cook meat together with milk.

The Jews are commanded to observe the three festivals — including the holiday of Sukkot, "the festival of the ingathering, at the turn of the year." All males are commanded to make pilgrimage to "be seen by G‑d" during these three festivals.

The maftir, from the Book of Numbers, discusses the public offerings brought in the Temple on this day of Sukkot.

The haftarah read on the Shabbat of Chol Hamoed Sukkot describes the "war of Gog and Magog." This is a war of apocalyptic proportions that the prophets tell us will occur around the time of Moshiach's coming. It is read on this Shabbat due to a tradition that this war will take place in the month of Tishrei, the month in which the festival of Sukkot is celebrated.

The war of Gog and Magog is described in a number of the books of the prophets. In summary, the war is described by Ezekiel in this haftarah as follows:

After the Jews are settled in their land, a coalition of nations led by Gog, king of the land of Magog, will be aroused to attack Israel. The military campaign will send tremors throughout the entire region, but G‑d will make it occur specifically in order for Gog and all his cohorts to receive their due downfall and punishment.

A great confusion will break out among the army of Gog. Mighty hailstones, fire and brimstone will rain down on them, causing so much havoc that they will begin killing each other.

The purpose of all these events is so that the world finally recognizes the sovereignty of G‑d.

(The prophet Zechariah (ch. 14 of his book) also describes this war, and states that Gog will make three attempts to vanquish Jerusalem. The third will prove to be successful, after which disaster will befall the city and its inhabitants. After this, however, Zechariah foresees the confusion and downfall of Gog and his hordes in similar terms as Ezekiel.)
