Beth Moshe Congregation

D’var Torah – Teruma

This week’s Torah portion is about our Mitzvah project of building the ark, the Aron ha-kodesh, which was made not only as a storage place for our Torah but also as a storage (source) of light.

D’var Torah – Mishpatim

This week Torah portion is Mishpatim – Laws, It is a perfect segway from last week Torah portion when we were inspired by the revelation on Mt. Sinai hearing the ten commandments and now, we are introduced to more practical laws we can apply to our daily life and reality.

D’var Torah – Parashat Yitro

We never know how our misfortunes in life will eventually turn to be our fortunes. We should have the faith that anything that we do, as negative as it might be (as in Yitro’s story), that once we decide to change our ways, that we can and will be rewarded. There is an inspiring story as an example for tikkun (fix) and a reward.

D’var Torah – Parashat Beshalach

This week’s tragic event with the loss of 24 soldiers during a building collapse in Gaza
caused by Hamas, made me feel like things are just getting worse.
Is redemption/salvation, freedom, release nearby?
