Hello [nickname_else_first_name],

 

PARACHAT BECHALAH : 15 CHEVAT 5777/ 11 FEVRIER 2017

CHABBAT CHIRA DEBUT : 4 :56 PM / FIN 6 :02 PM

Ce Chabbat coincide avec le nouvel an des plantes : Tou Bichvat, qui signifie le 15ème jour du mois de Chevat. Nous ferons un petit Seder pendant le Kiddouch pour souligner cette petite fête.Venez célébrer avec nous .

Aussi, c’est le Chabbat Chira; Le chant -AZ YACHIR MOCHE- que Moché a composé et a chanté en traversant la mer .Les femmes ont aussi accompagné Miryam en chantant.

 

LA PARACHA EN BREF :

Peu après avoir laissé les Enfants d’Israël quitter l’Égypte, Pharaon les pourchasse pour les forcer à revenir et les Israélites se retrouvent pris au piège entre les armées égyptiennes et la mer. D.ieu ordonne à Moïse d’élever son bâton au-dessus des eaux. La mer s’ouvre pour laisser passer les Israélites et se referme sur les poursuivants égyptiens. Moïse et les Enfants d'Israël entonnent un cantique de louanges et de reconnaissance à D.ieu.

Dans le désert, le peuple souffre de soif et de faim et se plaint à plusieurs reprises auprès de Moïse et d’Aharon. D.ieu adoucit miraculeusement les eaux amères de Marah, et, plus tard, fait couler de l’eau d’un rocher en demandant à Moïse de le frapper avec son bâton. Il fait tomber de la manne chaque matin avant l’aube et des cailles apparaissent dans le camp hébreu chaque soir.

Il est commandé aux Enfants d’Israël de récolter une double portion de manne chaque vendredi, car celle-ci ne tombera pas le Chabbat, le jour de repos décrété par D.ieu. Certains désobéissent et partent récolter de la manne le septième jour, mais ne trouvent rien. Aharon préserve une petite quantité de manne dans une jarre, en témoignage pour les générations futures.

À Réfidim, les Enfants d’Israël sont attaqués par les Amalécites, qui sont vaincus par les prières de Moïse et une armée levée par Yéhochoua.

LE SOURIRE DU CHABBAT

C’est un enfant qui a été frappé par la voisine. La mère, furieuse, va lui demander des explications :
– Pourquoi avez-vous frappé mon fils ?
– Parce qu’il est mal élevé : il m’a traité de grosse.
– Et vous croyez qu’en le frappant vous allez maigrir ?

 

 

C’est un couple qui va fêter ses 25 ans de mariage et l’épouse demande à son mari :
– Mon amour, que vas-tu m’offrir pour nos noces d’argent ?
Le mari répond :
– Un voyage en Chine.
La femme, très surprise par ce cadeau magnifique, lui demande :
– Mais mon amour, si pour nos 25 ans tu m’offres ça, que feras-tu pour nos 50 ans ??!!…
– J’irais te chercher.

 

Le rêve de toute femme est d’avoir trois hommes :
– Un de 20 ans pour le choc
– Un de 40 ans pour le chic
– Et un de 60 ans pour le chèque
