The latest edition of Parashah Talk, for Parashat Va-yera [Genesis 18:1-22:24] is now available. We ignored chapters 21 [birth of Isaac and banishment of Ishmael] and 22 [binding of Isaac and birth of Rebeccah], most recently read on Rosh Hashanah, a mere 7 weeks ago, and focused on chapter 19, Abraham’s famous conversation with God over the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah and the curious behavior of Lot, Abraham’s nephew, who, shall we say, repeatedly takes the low road, when given a choice. Comments are welcome at [email protected]. Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Jeremy Kalmonofsky and Barry Chesler. Enjoy!
