Discussion on Parshat Va'Erah
Parshat Shemot discussion inspired by Danya Hoenig's mother who spoke at Mitchell's Bar Mitzvah a day earlier. When are we first described as an Am (a nation) as opposed to a Goi (also a nation). and what's the difference.
In Parshat Vayetze we see Jacob going to the well where he meets his future wife. This well,scene is part of a trilogy of well scenes where marriages ensue. How can those 3 stories speak to us in modern times when shul dances are out of style and bar meetings are for one nighters.
Ever wonder why the Seder includes the story of the 5 Rabbis telling the story of the Exodus all night long until morning? Ever wonder what was Hitler's most hated Holiday? Wonder why Pesach is the most observed Jewish holiday? one thing i didn't get a chance to say in the video is that what we get to explore at the Seder is our 6th sense. like the Japanese have this Umami taste, we have a 6th sense that i would call the Imagination. It's "up here". you can't take it away. and if someone takes it away, then we are dead. And that is why the Seder has an order but only to move you on the path. It is up to us to tell our story any way we want. and to tap into our imagination year after year that redemption awaits us in Jerusalem. i don't think this is just a Jewish message. It's what Lord Rabbi Sacks would call the message of hope for all humanity. Not optimism that is passive that we wait for but hope that is active that we work for. And the secret ingredient is to tell the story over and over, year after year and help each person at the table tap into this unlimited reservoir of imagination to keep driving forward.
This is my weekly 2 minute Torah thought on the coming Parsha of Vayigash. This was delivered at Congregation Bnai David Judea in Los Angeles on December 21, 2014 on a Sunday morning.
Rabbi Kanesky spoke about the gift of Shabbat that gives us a framework to create Desire in our lives. and the first story I read today was about a boy who met the Chofetz Chaim who got him back on track just by saying the word Shabbat over and over. And what does this have to do with Yitro who gave Moshe advice that immediately was followed by receiving the showcased ten Commandments.
This is my weekly 2 minute Torah thought on the coming Parsha of Vayeitzei. This was delivered at Congregation Bnai David Judea in Los Angeles on November 23, 2014 on a Sunday morning.
Jason Ciment discusses articles in the Mishkan in his Sunday morning Parshat Tetzaveh Dvar Torah February 22, 2015 at Bnai David Judea
Parshat Chayei Sarah dvar Torah at Bnai David in 2015. Do you know the longest and oldest opera in history might be the Bible. The musical notes give subtext that fill gaps in the stories. Learn how the servant of Abraham struggled as he set out to find a wife for Isaac and what we can learn from his story.
This weekly bible portion #Vayerah is part of what I call the DNA series where the stories we read implant core values into our genetic DNA. And today we gain an ethical understanding of the biblical imperative of welcoming strangers into our lives. And this value really starts when we first hear about Abraham and we have no history to explain why he was chosen. His strangerness even to us becomes part of the timeless values in the ensuing story.
This is my weekly 2 minute Torah thought on the coming Holiday of Sukkot. This was delivered at Congregation Bnai David Judea in Los Angeles on October 5, 2014 on a Sunday morning.

This is my weekly 2 minute Torah thought on the coming Parsha of Vayishlach. This was delivered at Congregation Bnai David Judea in Los Angeles on November 30, 2014 on a Sunday morning.
Jason Ciment talks about why there are 2 tablets (Shnei Luchot) instead of one bigger tablet in his Sunday morning Parshat Mishpatim Dvar Torah on February 8, 2015 at Bnai David Judea. This is a good one because it talks about how Judaism is almost always treating events in life on two planes at the same time. And there is a duality going on which means you have to always be thinking about 2 messages simultaneously. Not easy.
Jason Ciment shared a hopefully original thought on the small Aleph in the first word of Parshat Vayikra. Hopefully this short Dvar Torah from March 15 2015 at Bnai David Judea does the trick.
This is my weekly 2 minute Torah thought on the coming Parsha of Noach. This was delivered at Congregation Bnai David Judea in Los Angeles on October 19, 2014 on a Sunday morning.
Parshat Tzav Dvar Torah March 2015. One of my favorite Haftorahs connected with the Tehilim we say on Thursday mornings.

Everyone is cordially invited to join us for the second session of "A Room of Many Hearts: Building a Complex and Nuanced Zionism". As in the first session, we’ll have the opportunity to hear from and to interact with a deeply-engaged and knowledgeable person presenting a view that we don’t ordinarily consider. Our guest presenter, Summer Massarwa of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues will share the realities on the ground that Palestinians deal with on a daily basis. As we will hear, Summer is not someone with a rehearsed presentation or an ax to grind. Rather, she is someone who can describe an important lived experience that we do not generally come into contact with when we visit Israel and rarely take the time to reflect upon.

Hey, it’s Mayim Bialik. Ever heard of an Orthodox woman who holds a clergy position? This week I’ve decided to highlight B’nai David-Judea, the only Orthodox synagogue in Southern California which employs a female clergyperson. Is this "allowed"? Is it "wrong"? See the link below to learn more about Rabbanit Alissa and watch this video to see how young boys and girls and our entire religious tradition can - and will - be affected by this evolution, no matter which side of this debate you fall on. 🤍 Thumbnail background image: 🤍 - You may know me as Amy Farrah Fowler from The Big Bang Theory, or from Blossom, but hopefully, these videos allow you to get to know me better as Mayim, too! Subscribe to my channel for video updates. We publish new videos every Thursday! What next? 🤍 Find Mayim Bialik: 🤍 🤍 🤍 Find Grok Nation 🤍 🤍 🤍 🤍 Official website 🤍 About Mayim Bialik: You might know me as Amy Farrah Fowler from The Big Bang Theory or from Blossom but there are so many other parts of me that you might not be aware of! I’m trained as a neuroscientist, I'm a passionate activist, an observant jew, a perfectly imperfect mother, and I'm a complicated human being like many of you. This is the place where I wear all of those hats - and none of them have a flower on them! ;)

Purim night at Beth Jacob 2016. Introduction by Rabbi Kalman Topp. There are a few references to the local community, so here are a few annotations: Beth Jacob is a Modern Orthodox shul in the Pico-Robertson/South Bevery Hills neighborhood. Bnai David is a nearby Open Orthodox shul. Ted Cruz did actually speak on Purim a couple of years ago at Young Israel of North Beverly Hills. YICC is Young Israel of Century City, and has a lot of membership overlap with Beth Jacob. Its rabbi is from Cleveland. Beth Jacob's cantor is named Arik Wolheim. Arik is a nickname for Aryeh.
