Passover 2020: Happy Hints Hidden in the Hallel

Every year as the members and friends of Congregation Shema Yisrael gather to celebrate Passover, we recite the following words from the Haggadah: “This is the bread of affliction which our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt; let all those who are hungry enter and eat of it. All who are in distress, come and celebrate the Passover.” I’d

Parables of Yeshua: Behold, the Bondslave of the Lord…

Would you agree that we are occupying what is a very brief, remarkable period of history? We live at the tail end of an amazing 244-year old experiment in human freedom and dignity. For us, the concept of being a servant or a slave is entirely academic. Yet, the New Covenant Scriptures were written at a time when indentured servanthood

The parasha for this Shabbat is entitled Ki Tissa, meaning “When you take or carry out (having to do with the taking of a census)” and covers Exodus 30-34. Included in this section of the Torah is the command to anoint with sacred oil the tent of meeting, the altar and its tools, and Aaron and his sons the priests.

The Parables Of Yeshua: Wheat and Weeds and Mustard Seeds

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what

Answering Alleged Difficulties In Scripture

This week Rabbi Glenn did a special study on reconciling apparent difficulties in Scripture.  He covered two issues: 1. The curse on Jeconiah (Jeremiah 22), whereas Jeconiah appears in Yeshua's genealogy (Matt. 1) 2. The apparent arbitrariness of God wanting to kill Moses right after commissioning him to deliver the Jewish people from Egypt. The new series in Matthew will

Va’era – “And I Appeared”

Our parasha this Shabbat is entitled Vaera, meaning “...and I appeared” covering Exodus 6-9. God tells Moses that whereas He had appeared to the Patriarchs by the title El Shaddai (‘God Almighty’), He was now revealing Himself to Moses and Israel by His personal name - a name we are no longer certain how to pronounce correctly. It is comprised

The Parables Of Yeshua: Salt And Light And Wisdom

Matthew 5:13-15 and Luke 6:46-49 (Matthew 7:24-27) Fact: you are salt “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.” Sodium chloride, a.k.a. salt, is absolutely essential for human life. Salt is

Chanukkah 2019: His Hidden Hand in Human History

“God works in mysterious ways!” You hear it all the time. Sometimes you hear it from people you’re pretty sure don’t even believe in God. It’s become an expression people use when things go very unexpectedly, but turn out well. It’s like saying, “Boy, I didn’t see that coming,” but since things turned out okay, you chalk it up to

The Personality-Driven Church

Kanye West has apparently gotten serious about the Lord. I was really happy to hear about it, but apparently, I underestimated how significant this was for a lot of people. For the next several weeks, it seems like it was wall-to-wall Kanye. Kanye releases a Gospel album. Kanye leads worship services. Kanye makes a guest appearance at Joel Osteen’s stadium.

Thanksgiving: Gratitude for Overwhelming Mercy

Just this past month, on October 2, the trial of former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger came to a close. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of Botham Jean, a man who lived in the same apartment complex. On September 6, 2018, returning home from work, Guyger walked into Jean’s apartment, for some reason thinking
