Shabbat Shalom: Lech L’Cha

Posted on October 30, 2020

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: How do you manage disagreement? Are you able to agree to disagree? In this week’s Torah portion, Abram (soon to be Abraham) and his nephew Lot find that they cannot both tend their cattle in the same place, as they had outgrown the space and their herdsmen were quarreling. They decided to separate and go in different directions so that there would be no strife between them. We have a great deal of strife in our country right now. Do you think this is a good way to manage it? Why or why not?

I hope we will see you at Shabbat services tonight (8:00 p.m.) or tomorrow morning (9:30 a.m.) or both!

Mazal Tov to Isaac Jacobs and his family on the occasion of Isaac becoming Bar Mitzvah this Shabbat and Shabbat Shalom!
