Welcome to a new series Shabbat Shalom from Shmuel! This week’s Torah Portion in Noach (Noah). What are the “waters of Noah”? Noah faced enormous challenges and built an ark-but did he pray for his fellow man? Discover the connection between Noah, Abraham, and the Tower of Babel on this week’s episode!
Welcome to a new series Shabbat Shalom from Shmuel! This week’s portion is Beresheet: In the beginning. Why does the Torah open with this story? How does this portion relate to the land of Israel? David Ben-Gurion used what to assert the Jewish right to their homeland?! All this and more in today’s episode.
This Shabbat is also the holiday of Simchat Torah, the day we celebrate the conclusion of the annual cycle of reading the weekly portions of the Five Books of Moses, the Torah.
This week is the holiday of Succot, the Feast of Tabernacles, and the middle of Sukkot falls on Shabbat, so once again the regular Torah reading is suspended and a special portion for the holiday is read instead.
