Mishpatim – “Judgments”

This week’s parasha is entitled Mishpatim, which is translated “Statutes” or “Judgments” and covers Exodus chapters 21 through 24. This section of the Torah contains extensive case law; fines and/or punishments for a broad spectrum of offenses having mostly to do with personal injury and property. Everything in this parasha demonstrates that, as beings created in the image of God,

2 Corinthians 12:1-21: Paul Continues To Defend His Ministry

There’s a saying, the origin of which I’m unsure, but I like it. I’ll paraphrase it: There’s no need to explain yourself; your friends don’t need an explanation, and your enemies won’t accept an explanation. The problem is, life isn’t quite that simple. We don’t live in a static world. Sometimes people who were friendly to you at one time

This week the study reviewed the end of 1 Samuel and the military defeat of Israel at the hands of the Philistines.  It also covered Saul's death, and how David responded to the news.  This week it covered the rest of 2 Samuel 2 and all of 2 Samuel 3.

Bo – “Go!”

The parasha this Shabbat is titled Bo, meaning “Go!” and takes us from Exodus 10 through most of chapter 13. We have already witnessed the depths of this pharaoh’s cruelty. His efforts at Jewish infanticide, and the ongoing and even intensified enslavement of our people. Adonai saw these things, heard the cries of our people, and remembered the covenant He

What Will We Be in 2018?

Notice I didn’t ask what will happen in 2018. The more I’ve been wondering what the year ahead holds for us, the more I realize that our particular circumstances will be profoundly less important than how we deal with them. Because how we address our circumstances tends to reveal the state of our souls. Let me share with you the

Vayechi – “And He Lived”

The Torah reading for this week is entitled Vayechi, meaning “And he lived”, referring to Joseph, and completes the book of B’reysheet. Last Shabbat we contemplated Jacob’s joyful reunion with his son Joseph, who for all those years he had thought to be dead. On account of the ongoing famine, Jacob and his entire family had relocated to Egypt, and

Chanukkah 2017: Cleanse the Temple… Again!

Don’t you wish there were more things in life that could be a one-and-done proposition? Like shoveling snow? In fact, there are very few things in this world, once accomplished, that you never have to think about again. Certainly not the dishes or the laundry, and, in the case of the Harris home, sweeping up dog hair tumbleweeds. It just

1 Samuel 23

This week Rabbi Glenn spent a little time discussing President Trump's announcement about recognition of Jerusalem and the planned relocation of the embassy. Then he  did a bit of review of 1 Samuel 21 and 22, and went on to study the entirety of 1 Samuel 23.

Vayishlach – “And He Sent”

The parasha for this Shabbat is entitled Vayishlach, translated “And He Sent”. It will take us through Genesis chapter 36. Allow me to preface my summary of the parasha with a brief statement. Human beings are inherently sinful – a perpetual condition inherited from our first rebellious parents in Eden. Because of it, we routinely fail to trust and wait

What Gratitude Looks Like

What does gratitude look like? What does it mean to be thankful? First of all, there needs to be a recipient. You can’t give thanks to the air, or to an inanimate object. If you are grateful, it is to Someone! To get an idea of what true Thanks-giving looks like, this morning I’d like us to read and consider

2 Corinthians 1:12–2:17 – It’s All Good

Being in spiritual leadership is such an easy gig. It’s the little things; like how everyone respects your advice, and nobody causes problems. Nobody questions your motives or takes issue with your decisions; nor do people compare you with other preachers. Criticisms are few, always presented in love and gentleness, and never behind your back. Just ask Moses… or the

V’zot Haberachah – “And This Is The Blessing”

The final weekly parasha is entitled V’zot HaB’racha, meaning,“and this is the blessing” and completes the annual cycle of Torah readings. Shortly before his death, Moses pronounces a blessing over the 12 tribes – a reiteration of what Jacob prophesied over his 12 sons five centuries earlier. The two blessings contain differences, and some of them are worth noting. The
