Every Rabbi's got to have an opinion, right?

Torah Portion: Parshas Vayeishev/Chanukah
Zechariah 2:14
by Rabbi Dovid Siegel

This week's haftorah, read in conjunction with Shabbos Chanukah reveals to us a hidden dimension of Hashem's compassionate ways. The prophet Zechariah predicts the rebuilding of the Bais Hamikdash and says, "Rejoice and be happy daughter of Zion for behold I am coming and I will dwell in your midst," says Hashem. This prophecy refers to the rebuilding of the second Temple which is finally becoming a reality after seventy dark years of exile

Torah Portion: Dvar for Vayishlach
Genesis 32:4-36:40

Welcome, welcome, to the world of the short yet practical Weekly Dvar. If you didn't get a Dvar last week, thereby questioning the "weekly" status, please know that apparently there was a flood of junk Emails sent this past week, and most of the major providers decided to delete Emails waiting to be sent, so that their systems wouldn't crash. In the future, if you don't get the Dvar, write back, and then check www.WeeklyDvar.com for the actual Dvar (and other things). Please feel free to write back with more people to add to this, and with any comments/questions you may have. And finally....Enjoy!

Torah Portion: Shabbat Parashat Vayishlach
December 16, 2000 - 19 Kislev 5761
