When scripture states, “Now Jacob settled in the land where his father had sojourned, the land of Canaan” (Genesis 37:1), one way of understanding this settling is the primary, more literal one, that of Jacob’s family putting down roots in […] http://bethsholomsf.org/vayeishev-genesis-371-4023-2/ Continue Reading...

Noah — Genesis 6:9-11:32

thumb_coverdesign_noah Living in a world where hate-mongering, half-truths, and outright lies are so prevalent in our national media, on local college campuses, and even on social networks with our “friends,” we might justifiably wonder — do we again find ourselves in a state where speech is exiled? This “exile of speech” is referred to by Jewish […] http://bethsholomsf.org/noah-genesis-69-1132-2/ Continue Reading...

Devarim — Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22

The Greek name for the book, though, is apt in another way. Deuteronomy, from the roots deutero […] http://bethsholomsf.org/devarim-deuteronomy-11-322/ Continue Reading...
