Parsha Talk – Bereishit

We begin again on Parashah Talk as the annual cycle of weekly Torah readings starts over this Shabbat with Parashat Bereshit [Genesis 1:1-6:8]. What would a discussion about Genesis be without talking at least a little about Creation? We also talk about the Garden of Eden, Cain and Abel, and the arc of the entire reading [we saved the ark for next week!]. As always, I, Rabbi Barry Chesler am in conversation with Rabbis Eliot Malomet and Jeremy Kalmanofsky. What is new this week, in addition to the Torah reading, is a brand new e-mail address, to which you can send questions you would like us to consider, comments, and criticisms [though the technical term is gentle suggestions!]: parshatalk@gmail.com. Shabbat Shalom!
