What We Discussed: Eikev

Posted on August 2, 2021

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: When Our Mental Health Is Tested.

On Saturday, we explored the Torah’s warning that we not let abundance cause us to grow haughty and forget Adonai is who gave us our prosperity. We discussed why we are told not to become arrogant and whether arrogance leads to other things, such as taking things for granted, which can have a snowball effect. whether we forget where we came from when life is too easy and we agreed that gratitude is an important way for us to stay grounded. We also discussed how we can find that balance so that we can have prosperity, but we don’t become arrogant at the same time. We had a great discussion. You can view the Source Sheet here.

Shavua Tov!
