Shiva de Nechemta - the seven weeks of comfort stretch from Tisha B'Av until Rosh Hashanah. During this time on every Shabbas we lain a Haftorah that is meant comfort to us. In this past weeks Haftorah for Parsha Va'etchanan (Isaiah Chapter 40). Hashem is comforting us by saying, "You are my nation, and I love you not matter what, even though you sinned and were punished." And in the parsha we say the Shema. One of the most important verses in a Jews lexicon! We need to live the words in our hearts and on our lips. With our entire self.
We also discuss Parsha Vayeira - Beresheit Chapter 18 - Verse 7. As Avraham runs hurriedly to get a calf to feed his guests, we continue to learn about the mitzvah of Hachnasat orchim (welcoming guests).
