Details & Foundations

By making two lists-Details & Foundations-you will find your Thanks will become an act of Giving.

Aleph Beta: Vayishlach: Difficult Conversations‏

Join us as we consider the story of the Rape of Dina with the respect and understanding it deserves.

Alaska

I told her that I could teach him the brachos to make on the Torah, he could get an aliyah, and in addition, I would help him write a short dvar Torah from the parsha.

Every Relationship Contains Elements Of Surprise

How is it possible that Yaakov didn't know he spent his wedding night with Leah rather than Rachel?

The Influence Of Society

Yaakov Avinu wasn’t afraid that he would learn to steal because of Lavan; he was afraid that his image of what is considered normal behavior might be affected.

Davening For A Miracle

A neis b'nistar causes a reduction in one’s zechuyos; therefore, one should not daven for it.

Our Home Base

What did Jacob mean when he realized the sanctity of the place he slept and declared it to be the House of G-d, Beit Elokim?

The Fathers-in-Law: Lavan and Yitro

Of all the many fathers-in-law in the Bible, only Yitro & Lavan are singled out for this designation

Aleph Beta: Vayeitzei: To Deceive Or Not To Deceive, That Is The Question‏

What is the Bible trying to teach us with this focus on Jacob and the theme of deception?

What Eisav Could Have Been

Eisav was born with great spiritual potential but he made a number of wrong choices.

Hamavdil

It seems to me that the practice of the Arizal is exactly what the Sfas Emes is noting and presents a balanced yet deeply spiritual teaching that is vital to internalize.

The Age Of Disrespect

Children knew their place, and the idea of a child speaking back to an adult was unheard of.

Hold Old Were Yaakov And Eisav?

It seems clear from this explanation that time spent in heaven does not constitute time in regards to aging and other time-related calculations in this world.

Father And Mother Know Best

After Abraham verified that Rebecca was indeed a worthy wife for Isaac, the Torah says, “vayiten Avraham lYitzchak,” Abraham transferred the tradition to Isaac.

Aleph Beta: Toldot: All’s Well That Ends Well‏

In the tales of Isaac one thing becomes apparent: He's rarely the main character in his own stories!

Children Can Often Repair Parents’ Missteps

Yehuda & Yosef are the tikun (repairing) for Yaakov, who deceived his father and suffered for it.

Redeeming Relevance: Serious Laughter

Ever wondered why the least funny Jew in the entire Torah should be named Yitchak, “He Laughed?”

Shabbos: A Day With Hashem – Light and Dark

When a person puts a brand or emblem on an object, it is to show that it belongs to him and no one else, and this is what happens on Shabbos.

Shabbos Mevorchim Kislev

His dilemma weighed heavily on him, even as he was in the process of burying a poor departed soul.

Parshat Chayei Sarah

All too often leaders fail to consider adequately the importance of logistics and their organizations suffer as a consequence.
