11 Nov Rabbi Hillel Skolnik’s Torah Spark for Lech L’cha 5777
This Shabbat we read from Parashat Lech L’cha in which God tells Abram to go forth from his land to the land that God will show him. At its core, it is an instruction from God to Abram to travel into the unknown but to do so with the faith that God will always be with him. In our lives there are often times when we travel into the unknown, this week very much included, hopefully with the faith that God will always be with us. But whereas Abram travelled only with his wife and nephew, we venture into the unknown together as a community which is always a blessing.
