Vayishlach:  Women and Silence Then and Now 

Dear Friends,

A number of you have asked whether Temple Chai will respond to the recent flood of news regarding sexual harassment. While we have not been in the practice of distributing teachings or sermons that we give in weekly services, below is an audio recording of some brief reflections I shared on that topic this past week during Kabbalat Shabbat.

As we develop our new Temple Chai website and blog in the coming months, we will share our thoughts with you more frequently. I look forward to doing so and to hearing from you as well.

We hope to see you soon. Please especially consider joining us for Shabbat Chanukkah on December 15th.
