“Get Yourself Out” This week’s Torah Portion introduces us to one of the most famous and revered men in Scripture – Abraham. Or as he is known throughout the majority of this Parsha, Avram. To see a bit more about his influence and character we will first look at Moshe….
There was nothing left to do. The laws and statutes that held the world together were being ripped apart by mankind and their desire to serve only themselves. We often forget that our actions or inactions can have a severe consequence on the world. The only thing to be done was to gather Noah and his family into the ark, close the door behind them and wait out the flood.
This week’s Torah Portion brings us full circle as we begin a new cycle. What a blessing it is to return to the beginning, may we see things we haven’t seen before, and be drawn closer to the our Creator and King. As the book of Beresheit (Genesis) opens there…
A leader is someone with a vision and the desire to make it happen. They start with an idea, a longing, a burning and they calculate the costs of the road they will be traveling. Unfortunately, the journey can sometimes wear down even the strongest and most idealistic of visionaries.

The Torah isn’t a simple story; a chronological history of a chosen people that ends when the book of Devarim/Deuteronomy does. Instead, this week’s parsha begins a new cycle of events.

Have you ever stopped to think about what can happen in a moment? A life can be saved, a comet can streak through the sky and lightning can illuminate the darkness. In the time it takes for and eye to blink, a moment may be missed and the opportunity never to present itself again. It may be a once in a lifetime instance or perhaps part of your daily routine. Regardless of the frequency of the occurrence, that specific moment is present only in the now.
Our portion this week consists of a collection of laws that range from captives of war, to the treatment of animals, to social justice. They seem to have very little to do with each other, yet as I read this week I noticed a connection I hadn’t considered before. Each…
“When you besiege a city for a long time by fighting against it to take it, you do not destroy its trees by wielding an axe against them. If you do eat of them, do not cut them down.
