Humble, Why?

Categories: Parshah

A WEEKLY TORAH THOUGHT FROM RABBI MORDY This week’s Parsha, Behar, contains various laws, including that of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. What I would like to focus on, however, is the name of the Parsha. “Behar” means “on the mountain,” which indicates its significance; the laws of the Torah were communicated to Moses on Mt. Sinai. But why is the parsha… Read More

Skin in the Game

Categories: Vayechi

This week’s Parsha – Vayechi – concludes the Book of Genesis, the first of the “Five Books of Moses.” Traditionally, at the end of each book, the synagogue calls out in unison, “Chazak chazak venischazek!” Which means “Be strong, be strong and may we be strengthened,” thus giving us a little inspiration and charge to move on into the next… Read More

Time to Go

A WEEKLY TORAH THOUGHT FROM RABBI MORDY This week’s Parsha, Vayeilech, nears the end of the journey of the Torah. (Next week is the final Parsha, read before Simchat Torah.) It begins the end, if you will, the final song before Moses leaves this world. We find something so telling in the Parsha’s name: Vayeilech means, “And he went.” Wait,… Read More
