If You’ve Got It – Use It

A “wake up” article from here:

In this week’s Torah portion, God gives the specifications on how the High Priest’s clothing is to be made. Since this entire process requires very precise work, God wanted the clothing to be made by:

“…the wise-hearted people whom I have invested with… wisdom.” (Exodus 28:3)

A LIFE LESSON

God wanted those individuals whom He “invested with … wisdom” to be the ones in charge of making the High Priest’s clothing. What does it mean that God invested wisdom? It means exactly what is meant by any other investment – a return on the investment isn’t merely hoped for, but expected. God makes an investment in each and every one of us when He gives each of us a unique and special talent. Would you put all your money into a bank whose policy was never to pay any interest on the accounts? Of course not.

Universally, every person born to caring parents has heard that he is “unique in your own way.” As children, Continue reading

Christians Look to Torah Portion to Prove Solar Eclipse is the “Shadow of God”

For centuries, the weekly Torah portion was the exclusive domain of the Jewish people. However, non-Jews have recently started to look into the Torah portion for instruction and meaning as well.

Prominent Christian leaders told Breaking Israel News they have found connections to the upcoming solar eclipse in Saturday’s Torah portion and its modern day implications.

“The time has come when non-Jews are realizing they have been taught lies. Why would people want a counterfeit when there is an original? We study the Torah portions to connect with the Jews all over world and because we believe the Torah is still relevant today,” Pastor Mark Biltz, the bestselling author of “Blood Moons,” told Breaking Israel News. “I bring in commentaries by Rashi, Rambam, Ramban and others because of the incredible insights. Non-Jews are discovering what they have missed by not studying in context.”

“I have always heard from my Israeli Jewish friends how the Torah portion has been shown over and over again to be relevant to current events in Israel,”  explained Bob O’Dell, co-founder of Root-Source, “and now I am starting to see it for myself.”

O’Dell, a student of astronomy for the last 35 years, discovered this upcoming Friday’s exceedingly rare North Pole eclipse, as first reported by Breaking Israel News.

The total solar eclipse will take place over the North Pole on Friday, March 20, coinciding with the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the Biblical calendar year. The particular timing of Friday’s solar occurrence has never happened before in human history. Continue reading

On Not Trying to Be What You Are Not

By Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

The great leaders know their own limits. They do not try to do it all themselves. They build teams. They create space for people who are strong where they are weak. They understand the importance of checks and balances, and the separation of powers. They surround themselves with people who are different from them. They understand the danger of concentrating all power in a single individual. But learning your limits, knowing there are things you cannot do—even things you cannot be—can be a painful experience. Sometimes it involves an emotional crisis.

The Torah contains four fascinating accounts of such moments. What links them is not words but music. From quite early on in Jewish history, the Torah was sung, not just read. Moses at the end of his life calls the Torah a song. Continue reading
