Torah Portion: Lekh L’Kha (Get Yourself Out)-B’resheet/Genesis 12:1-17:27
Haftorah Reading Isaiah 40:27-41:16
As we go over this Torah portion today I ask you all to contribute your thoughts on the man Avram, his motivations in life and his spiritual qualities that moved him to answer the call of G-d and go to a land not yet known to him. He left his old life behind and ventured out to follow the L-rd’s direction. As we discuss this portion let the Father speak to you about your own life and what He is calling you to do.
Torah Portion: Vayeishev (He Continued Living) B’Resheet (Gen.) 37:1-40:23
HafTorah: Amos 2:6-3:8
New Testament: Acts 7:9-16
Tonight we read about the life of Joseph from an early age until he gets out of prison. However I would like us to spend most of our time on Genesis 38, which is the story of Tamar and Judah. I think as we read this chapter it would at first glance seem to have little connection with the flow of the life of Joseph. However, we will see similarities as we go through it.
