Parashah Ki Tissa
I write and speak often about the centrality of community to the Jewish experience. John Donne posited, “No man is an island” … Judaism posits that no lone Jew is a self-sufficient island, either.

Exodus 25:1 - 27:19
“And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them.” (Exodus 25:8)
“I will abide among the children of Israel and I will never forsake My people Israel.” (1 Kings 6:13)
“Seek the LORD while He can be found; call to Him while He is near.” (Isaiah 55:6)Whoever asks “Where is God to be found?” should consider the classic response of the Kotzker Rebbe, Menachem Mendel of Kotzk (1787-1859), “Where God is allowed entry,” and then remember that the prophet Isaiah teaches us that allowing God entry begins with seeking God and calling out to God.

Parashat Yitro Exodus 18:1-20:23
This week’s Torah portion (Yitro) describes one of the pivotal moments of the Jewish people. After the Exodus from Egypt, the Israelites receive the Torah at Mt. Sinai. But before the commandments are given, before Moses sees God face-to-face on the mountain amid smoke and fire, he journeys to Midian to see his father-in-law Jethro, and the two men kibbitz about work.

Our weekly Torah portion, Bo, describes the final three otot (lit. “signs,” but commonly translated as plagues), that God brings upon the Egyptian people in an attempt to convince Pharaoh to free the Israelites from bondage.

There is considerable debate today about the “fiscal cliff” and what constitutes the right economic direction for our country. The coming weeks are a critical time as congressional leaders and the president work to bring the federal government’s revenue and spending more in balance.
