Noa Shenkar's Bat Mitzvah



Shalom! My name is Noa Shenkar, and I'm excited to step up to the bimah for the first time and lead the CBS community in prayer!

I've enjoyed the time I've studied with Rabbi Glazer and Rabbi Elisheva [Salamo]. It is fun to learn more about the Torah, and to discuss the messages in my Torah portion, Parashat Lech Lecha.

Lech Lecha brings up some difficult questions of truth. When Abraham faces a crisis, he must think very quickly, and decide whether or not it is permissible or not to tell a lie in order to get out of a complicated situation with the Pharaoh.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday, November 12.
