Weekly Torah Portion

Hand on Foot – Toldos (Rabbi Dovid Kaplan) (Weekly Parsha)

Rabbi David Kaplan – Shares some aspects of the Weekly Parsha we just read (Toldos). One interesting topic was the name Esav (who was Yaakov’s twin brother) – his name means complete – meaning he felt he was complete and had nothing else to learn a complete human being. This is opposite Yaakov (and the Jewish way) that says we are not complete that there is always room to continue to grow throughout our life. Two different perspectives to teach us today.

Several folks have already proactively made donations to help those in Israel affected by the War – food, medical services, food/items for Israeli soldiers, and items to support religious activities/services.

Like we prayed on Rosh Hashana:
Teshuva (repentance), Tefilah (prayer), and Tzedakah (charity) remove an evil decree.
