This week’s Torah portion, Toldos, begins with the words, And these are the generations of Yitzchak the son of Avraham; Avraham begot Yitzchak. Chassidus explains that Avraham represents the attribute of love and Yitzchak represents the attribute of fear and awe in our service of Hashem. Rabbi Aharon Schmidt, shaliach of the Rebbe in Beit Shemesh, explains how we can take this message to our family lives.
Living Jewish Toldos:
A shul is not only a place to daven but is a community where simchas and life cycle events are shared, learning takes place and friendships are built. What should we be looking for and how should we find our place in a shul?
