Trick or Treat: Choosing Our Costumes
10:30 AM, Sunday, March 5, Amazing Grace Spiritual Center
2007 NW 61st Street, Seattle
The Jewish Halloween (March 12) is called Purim, and invites us to choose the costume we will be wearing. The story in the Book of Esther offers options of a bona fide hero, a beautiful heroine, a really bad bad guy, and a somewhat clueless king. But maybe we are already in costume, and it's time to become more conscious about the one we have chosen.

An Operating Manual for Planet Earth
I often think of the Ten Commandments as an operating manual for planet earth. Those principles, so important that they are listed twice in the Torah, first in this weekly parashah in the Book of Exodus, later in the Book of Deuteronomy, provide a foundation for a world of peace -- and a stunning description of how to create a world of polarization and war.
— from Weekly Torah Focus
The Weekly Focus concludes with a meditation supporting the essence of the teaching.
