¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

We are introduced to Avrohom this week with what our Sages determine to be one of the 10 tests that he overcame. Here he is told to leave his home and go on “aliya” to the land destined to become Eretz Yisroel. Yet he is also promised wealth, fame, and success. The question we all ask ourselves is how many of us would drop everything to go on aliya if we were assured the same. Would we drop everything call Nefesh Bnefesh head to the airport and be on the next El-Al flight to Tel Aviv? I guess the answer is probably yes but for most of not necessarily a slam dunk. It’s a different culture, climate, topography, and filled with political intrigue. We are leaving our families, homes, and way of life. Furthermore, wealth fame and success carry its own challenges. How do we utilize this newfound world? Are we better able to manage this kind of success? These are but some of the challenges facing Avrohom. Thankfully he overcame those obstacles and hurdled past the finish line. His successful aliya spearheaded hundreds of thousands throughout Jewish history.

To all those who are not well as well as those worldwide with this virus. Let Hashem hear our tefillos on their behalves, and all have a speedy recovery. If there is a choleh that needs a misheberach, please email their name to anshemotele@sbcglobal.net .
Since we are not currently making the Mishebarach at Torah readings, in your private shmone esrai, you can include in the “Refaeinu” paragraph a special tefilla for the cholim that you have in mind.
