Vayigash: Kindness Amid Suffering

Posted on: December 29th, 2011

JudaismParsha

Hashem’s kindness is limitless, and even when He administers judgment, it is tempered with kindness.

 

Why Was Yaakov Avinu Reciting Krias Shema?

Posted on: December 29th, 2011

JudaismParsha

In this week’s parshah, Yaakov is reunited with his son Yosef after having being separated from him for 22 years.

 

Closeness And Distance

Posted on: December 29th, 2011

JudaismParsha

What do porcupines do in winter? asked Schopenhauer. If they come too close to one another, they injure each other. If they stay too far apart, they freeze. Life, for porcupines, is a delicate balance between closeness and distance. It is hard to get it right and dangerous to get it wrong. And so it is for us.

Parshat Mikeitz

Posted on: December 22nd, 2011

JudaismParsha

Looking back in time it is amazing to realize that every so often we encounter a 24-hour period with a timeless impact on the trajectory of human history. These periods, though short in actual time, through the convergence of multiple factors, produced historic decisions—decisions that arguably affected humankind forever after.

Mikeitz: The Greatness Of Joseph

Posted on: December 22nd, 2011

JudaismParsha

“And Joseph went out over the land of Egypt” (41:45). This was one of the greatest tests he underwent in his career. Wearing the king’s ring (41:42), clothed in royal linen with a golden chain around his neck (ibid.), riding in the second royal chariot with runners before him (41:43), having full power over the land (41:44), having an Egyptian name and an Egyptian wife the daughter of a priest, he had every reason to disown his family which had so wronged him, and he could have without any effort become a full Egyptian in heart and soul.

Beis HaMikdash – Spiritual Power Source

Posted on: December 21st, 2011

JudaismParsha

The Bach, commenting on Tur Shulchan Aruch, explains that the decrees of the Yivanim against the Jewish people occurred because the Jewish people became “lax in their service.”

 

The Real Issue

Posted on: December 21st, 2011

JudaismParsha

There has long been a massive debate in Anglo Jewry as to whether we should take a unified stance in our support for the State of Israel or openly air our differences. It’s mostly been a noisy and shrill debate, but it’s the wrong debate – as it is deflecting us from the real issue.

 

The Truth Behind Yosef’s Allegations

Posted on: December 15th, 2011

JudaismParsha

In the beginning of this week’s parshah the Torah says that Yosef brought bad reports about his brothers to their father, Yaakov. Rashi explains that in these reports Yosef stated that his brothers would eat eiver min hachai (a limb from a live animal), degrade the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah by referring to them as slaves, and that they were suspect of transgressing with arayos (immoral relations).

 

Conversation Is The Key To Understanding

Posted on: December 15th, 2011

JudaismParsha

From Parshat Vayeishev to the end of Sefer Bereishit, we read the story of Joseph and his brothers. From the very beginning we are plunged into a drama of sibling rivalry that seems destined to end in tragedy.

Living Like A Rock

Posted on: December 15th, 2011

JudaismParsha

Rashi tells us that after the Torah described the life of Eisav in an abbreviated manner, it then told over the events of the life of Yaakov in full detail.

Vayishlach: Joseph’s Rise To Power

Posted on: December 8th, 2011

JudaismParsha

The story of Joseph’s rise to power is striking. Each facet of Joseph’s life was a preparation for his grand career as one of Israel’s foremost leaders. In this episode, Rabbi Avigdor Miller, zt”l, found Hashem’s providence to be strikingly evident and saw in each incident of his life the future benefit for Israel.

Accomplice To Evil

Posted on: December 7th, 2011

JudaismParsha

Shechem, the son of Chamor, set his sights on Dina. He carefully laid a trap to entice her out of her tent, and then kidnapped and defiled her. When Yaakov and his sons heard what had been done, “they were extremely distressed . . . [and said] ‘So shall not be done!’ ”

 

Being Held Accountable

Posted on: December 7th, 2011

JudaismParsha

By any standards it was a shocking episode. Jacob had settled on the outskirts of the town of Shechem, ruled by Hamor. Dinah, Jacob’s daughter, goes out to see the town. Shechem, Hamor’s son, sees her, abducts and rapes her, and then falls in love with her and wants to marry her. He begs his father, “Get me this girl as my wife.”

Counting Our Blessings

Posted on: November 30th, 2011

JudaismParsha

This week we read Parshas Vayeitzei, the parsha in which Yaakov Avinu meets Rachel and Leah, marries and begins a family. What an appropriate time to take a look at our own lives and focus on all the good we have been blessed with.

 

Parshat Toldot
