The Revelation of …..

THE REVEALING! This week’s Parsha (reading) of the scriptures concerns the revealing of a man whom many presumptiously thought dead. When his brothers turned against him in anger, threw him in a pit for being what they thought was arrogant and presumptious, and then finally sold him off to some unscrupulous gangs traveling along the road to Egypt….they thought they were rid of their ‘problem’. Not so. Nothing is ever that simple! We ourselves try to get rid of our problems by dumping them into a pit, passing them off to an unsuspecting soul and believing that we have...

December 25, 2020

An interesting date, to be sure – especially in the year we are trying to forget …… 2020. Some call it Christmas Day, some Friday, others Shabbat. I’m of the latter group and while I do still have lingering snowflakes dancing in my head and memories of mountains of presents flickering in the recesses of my phyche….they are simply distant places that once occupied time.

This is the month when He is holding our...

Entering in

…to celebrate –  SHABBAT! Another week has come to a close and a new one begins as we take deep breaths … in – out – in – out and settle into the joy and peace of Shabbat! The seventh day is a day set aside by the Holy One Himself – from the beginning of time.  A time for all of us, man and beast, to rest and renew our strength. We rest in Him because – well, He IS our strength! During these last few weeks of transitioning into a different reality – one that does not have my youngest son here in the flesh – one would think that...

Sabbath Ponderings

Pondering a few teachings that I read or listened to this past week….pondering on the Torah portion… and came up with a novel idea.   Maybe this is the week that each and every person will decide to get past all the drama and trauma in their lives and to actually MOVE ON with what the Creator of the Universe has called them to do.   Maybe … just maybe if each and every one of us embrace and walk in humility and consider each other as a child of the King, maybe, just maybe we will be fully able to walk in what He has called us to do.   And what that might be?????   TO...
