Dear Friends,
  Happy Leap Day!

   Have you ever seen the famous statue of Moses by Michelangelo in Rome?
   It is grand, but Moses has horns! Why? The standard explanation is that this is a mistranslation of a verse in this week's Torah portion. But now some biblical scholars are not so sure....
   We'll leap into the controversy at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

     We continue our leap into Halakhah, Jewish Law, at our Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM).

     Speaking of leaping, did you know that every few years the Jewish calendar has not a leap day, but a leap month! It's called Second Adar, and this year it begins March 11. It’s the reason the Holidays were so "early" last year and are so "late" this year. Yes, it’s complicated, but maybe I'll take a stab at explaining it next month :)

Shabbat shalom,
Rabbi Schwartz
