Columnists, D'var Torah

Be happy having only what you need

Posted on 16 January 2019

With the Ten Plagues and the other great miracles that God wrought to bring us out of slavery in Egypt, I will admit that the miracle I’m fascinated with in this week’s Torah portion, B’shalach, is not as spectacular. It’s kind of a quiet, unpretentious miracle that I am drawn to examine and understand. Once […] Continue Reading

Esau’s angel wanted to cripple Jacob’s Torah love

Posted on 16 January 2019

It seems like there’s more important places to try to harm than the leg. I understand what you said about the Jewish […] Continue Reading

A meaningful Star of David makes its debut

Posted on 16 January 2019

I made a promise to myself on the day of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre in my native Pittsburgh: I would no longer go out in public without something identifiably Jewish around my neck. I have stars, Hamsas, even a miniature State of Israel made there from the metal of a scud rocket. I […] Continue Reading

Tu B’Shevat is nearing, and almonds are budding

Posted on 10 January 2019

By Tina Wasserman The temperature was frigid last week, and today it is sunny and in the high 60s. On view from my kitchen window is a large patch of green daffodil stalks playing their annual game of “chicken” with winter. In Dallas, we always have warmer weather that is interrupted by a week or […] Continue Reading
