Parashat Vayera (Genesis 18:1- Genesis 22:24) Contains two of the Torah’s most important stories.
We cannot fully understand the vital lessons of the stories of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the Binding of Isaac unless we read them in conjunction with one another.
In addition to these two stories, the portion contains an additional lesson that could very well save your marriage.
For all of these reasons you do not want to miss our Shabbat Welcome Friday evening, November 6 at 7:30 or our Shabbat morning Torah study Saturday, November 7 at 9:30 AM.
An interesting Bat Yam debate has arisen: should our weekly quiz questions be tougher so that winning a virtual candy bar will be more difficult or should the questions continue to encourage as many people as possible to answer? I welcome your thoughts.
In the meantime, this week’s question is: How old is Sarah when Isaac is born?
