Parsha Vayeira - Chapter 21 – Verses 1
We read this pasuk on Rosh Hashanah - how significant that we are learning it today! In this verse Hashem "remembered" Sarah, and she became pregnant. A big part of our Rosh Hashanah services is about Zichronos (Remembrances). In the shiur today Raize gives over this concept of remembrances to remind us that Hashem never forgets us and the special relationship we as the Jewish people have with him.
The greatest way we expressed ourselves to Hashem in our entire history was when we went out of our comfort zone and followed Hashem blindly into the desert. Zacharti lach chesed ne’urayich - lechtech acharai bamidbar – I recall the kindness of your youth - you followed Me into the wilderness.”
Lechtech - take a small step in a new direction - make a kabala
Acharai- accept Hashem's will that everything is the way it should be - everything in it's right time.
Bamidbar - go out of your comfort zone into the wilderness
May we all be zoche, to truly be inscribed for a Shanah Tovah u’metuka – a deliciously sweet year - and be able to actualize these 3 ideas.
Our learning today is l'ilui neshama for our dear GEM sister Rachel (Roslyn) Croog.
