The pain in Israel – is our pain!

Dear  Friend»

  If you're like me, you've probably been closely following the reports from Israel. Every time we read of another stabbing, it feels like we've been stabbed. Every time we learn of another murder, it feels as if a part of us has died. Yes, these people live far away from us, but they are so very near to our hearts, part of our extended Jewish family.

   So what can we do for our family members, our brothers and sisters? For starters, we can pray. Pick up a Psalms or a prayerbook, or just use your own words to ask G-d to heal the broken hearts of our people and bring an end to this insanity. Also, give some charity. The rattle of even a few coins will create a clamor on high. Another tool in our spiritual arsenal is Torah study. Pull out a Torah book, view an online class, or join a real one, and you'll have bolstered our nation's spiritual protection.

  We also need to battle against the media's (and sadly, our own State Department's) attempt to paint this as a "cycle of violence", equating the actions of evil terrorists with those seeking to protect human life. We must stand united, strong and resolute in our support for Israel.

  I hope you'll take me up on some of these suggestions, or chose your own mitzvah. The main thing, the Rebbe would often repeat, is that we do something!

  With prayers for peace in our Holy Land and in our Eternal Capital of Jerusalem.

Shabbat Shalom,

A fascinating new six-session course from the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute

What is a soul? Where does it go after it departs this world? Do Jews believe in heaven and hell? Can souls communicate with us from the afterlife? How does reincarnation work?

Journey of the Soul explores the mysteries surrounding the spiritual dimension of our existence – our destiny that continues even after we've shed our earth-bound body suit.

We examine the transition of the soul into the hereafter, the kinds of legacies that are valued even after we've forsaken this earthly existence, and the accompanying emotional journey and rituals that help the soul and those closest to it prepare for its new reality.

Parshat Noach

G‑d instructs Noah—the only righteous man in a world consumed by violence and corruption—to build a large wooden teivah (“ark”), coated within and without with pitch. A great deluge, says G‑d, will wipe out all life from the face of the earth; but the ark will float upon the water, sheltering Noah and his family, and two members (male and female) of each animal species.

Rain falls for 40 days and nights, and the waters churn for 150 days more before calming and beginning to recede. The ark settles on Mount Ararat, and from its window Noah dispatches a raven, and then a series of doves, “to see if the waters were abated from the face of the earth.” When the ground dries completely—exactly one solar year (365 days) after the onset of the Flood—G‑d commands Noah to exit the teivah and repopulate the earth.

Noah builds an altar and offers sacrifices to G‑d. G‑d swears never again to destroy all of mankind because of their deeds, and sets the rainbow as a testimony of His new covenant with man. G‑d also commands Noah regarding the sacredness of life: murder is deemed a capital offense, and while man is permitted to eat the meat of animals, he is forbidden to eat flesh or blood taken from a living animal.

Noah plants a vineyard and becomes drunk on its produce. Two of Noah’s sons, Shem and Japheth, are blessed for covering up their father’s nakedness, while his third son, Ham, is punished for taking advantage of his debasement.

The descendants of Noah remain a single people, with a single language and culture, for ten generations. Then they defy their Creator by building a great tower to symbolize their own invincibility; G‑d confuses their language so that “one does not comprehend the tongue of the other,” causing them to abandon their project and disperse across the face of the earth, splitting into seventy nations.

The Parshah of Noach concludes with a chronology of the ten generations from Noah to Abram (later Abraham), and the latter’s journey from his birthplace of Ur Casdim to Charan, on the way to the land of Canaan.
