Studying the Parshah

Blogging has encouraged me to study our tradition in a different way and also to share my findings. I have been greatly encouraged by the comments people have left as well as by Leora whith whom I studied the Book of Ruth, Pirkei Avot and Tehilim.

This time, we plan to study the weekly portion, otherwise known as Parshah, which is read in synagogues every week around the world. Because the Parshah is so important in Judaism and because I am amazed to see how there is always something that speaks to me one way or other, I’d like to try to post about it each week, starting next week when we start reading the first section of the Torah, Bereishit.

“Turn it and turn it again, for everything is in it.”(Pirkei Avot 5:27)
