In this week’s portion we have the demise of the 5 towns of Sodom, Gemorrah, etc. Most people associate their wickedness with sexual immorality and although there may have been that, their real sin lied in their absolute contempt for strangers.

 

If Abraham represented to pinnacle of hospitality they represented the exact opposite; even deeming it a capital offense according to our commentaries.

 

Ultimately their sin stemmed from their belief that God was limited; that what the world had to offer was a zero sum game and thus could not be shared. Abraham, on the other hand, recognized the infinity of God’s largesse and made it his life’s work to share it with whomever he could.

 

Congratulations to Arthur and Randi Luxenberg for the majestic bris of their first grandchild at our synagogue.

 


 

Jack Ancona will most likely be attending services at the synagogue tomorrow night at 5:50pm for the conclusion of his shiva.


We are also working hard to build our profile on social media. Please take the opportunity to get a richer view of the fabric of our synagogue life!
