This Shabbat I want to involve each of you in a personal search. What trees have you planted and what trees will you plant?  My question this week involved Genesis 21:33. In this verse we read, “And he planted a tamarisk tree in Beer Sheva and there he called on the name of the L-rd, the G-d of the universe.”

Torah Portion: Lekh L’kha (Get Yourself Out)B’resheet(Genesis) 12:1-17:27

Today we read and study the most important Torah portion of the bible. Up until the last few words of last week’s study we know almost nothing of Abraham’s life. We find nothing in scripture about his childhood, his youth, how he came to marry Sarah. Nowhere does scripture describe any of the qualities of his character that brought G-d to single him out to become the initiator of what ultimately turned out to be the greatest revelation in the religious history of human beings until the coming of the Messiah. We can all trace our faith back to this nomad who stepped out and followed G-d.

Torah Portion: Noah B’resheet(Genesis) 6:9-11:32

Haftorah Reading: Isaiah 54:1-55:5

Tonight we read and study the Parasha Noah. There are many ways to look at this man’s life. We will look at several aspects of Noah’s life and see what each have to say to us.

For each of us there are milestones on our spiritual journey that change the direction of our life and set us on a new path. Some of us have had times when we look at our life and we think, “When will I ever catch a break? When will I get a chance to just breathe?” Maybe all of us have been in that place at some time in our life. Some people look at Noah’s life and see him as such a person. He was surrounded by a totally wicked world. Noah’s answer was his encounter with G-d. The Father told him to build an ark for him and his family as well as the animals.
