Shabbat is more than a day of refraining from worldly activity.

When experienced to its spiritual fullest, its holiness enlightens all other days of the week.

We invite you to enhance your Shabbat with these words of Torah.

Parashat Toledot

Parashat Toledot

Emor Project
November 19, 2023

In this week’s parasha, Toledot, we read about how Hashem protected and saved our Avot [forefathers]. By following their example, we, too, will merit Hashem’s protection and salvation.


To merit Hashem’s protection, we must recognize His supreme involvement in our lives. It’s not just about politics and security.


We need to engage in physical hishtadlut (effort) while following the will of Hashem, as taught in our Torah.


Each of us knows which aspects of our Jewish observance should be improved.


Let us take the opportunity to accept upon ourselves concrete enhancement in our observance of Hashem’s Torah and mitzvot so that we may merit His protection.
