Weekly Parshah Reflections – Lech Lecha

This week, we look at the parshah of Lech Lecha – of Abraham’s journey to the land that God will show him. This section raises interesting questions about ownership of land.. but perhaps that is the wrong question.

Welcome to the “Raising Holy Sparks” podcast! Hope you enjoy these short weekly insights into the torah portion! This week we dive deep into the Parshah of Lech Lecha.

Sources mentioned in this week’s torah portion reflection:

  • Genesis 12:6 – the Canaanites were long in the land before Abraham arrived.
  • Chasidic story – as two men fight over their ownership of the land.
  • Genesis 2:5  – there is no habitat without human care and stewardship over the land.

Thanks for listening and looking forward to being on this journey through the books of the Torah with you!
