Bar Mitzvah Stuff

Other Stuff

My son became bar mitzvah a couple of weeks ago.  A few people asked questions about his d'var Torah.  With his permission, then, here it is:

 

Shabbat Shalom, (Pause)

My Torah portion is Chayei Sarah. It translates to the life of Sarah, but really is about Abraham burying her and finding a wife for his son Issac. My Torah portion starts with Sarah dying and Abraham finding a grave-site for her; he is offered the grave-site he wants as a gift but he insists on paying the market price. Next Abraham sends his servant Eliezer to find a wife for his son Isaac. The servant goes and finds Rebekah who draws water for him and his camels. He gives her gifts of gold and is invited into her family's home. They let him speak and he says that he would like to take her back to Canaan to be a wife for Issac. The family says they want to stay with her for 10 days, but Abraham’s servant says he would like to go immiediately. They asked Rebekkah whether she wanted to leave right away and she said yes. They went back to Canaan and Issac met her. The fell in love at first sight.


While looking at my Torah portion I found one thing very interesting and this was Rebekah giving the servant and his camels water. This I thought was a telling factor of Rebekah’s character. Her family also invited him into their home. The servant was a complete stranger and yet they treated him like a friend.

I think that the way that Rebekah treats guests and strangers is how we should treat everybody. My Torah portion teaches us compassion and respect. This is because Rebekah understands how thirsty Abraham’s servant was and gave him water. I also think that her family inviting Abraham’s servant and his camels into their home is respectful because he had something to say and they gave him a chance to say it. I think that we can follow Rebekah’s model today by giving to people less fortunate than us. I think that we can follow Rebekah's family's example by giving people a chance to speak their mind without fear of criticism.


To me the Torah portion is about respect and kindness. I think that it tells us to respect and be kind to everyone. I think it tells us to not only be kind, but also to encourage everyone to be. I think that it tell us that we should try to make this world better by making it more respectful. To me this is expressed in a saying said by a Rabbi named Hillel he once said “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” To me this is like the golden rule “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

To conclude I would like to thank some people for helping me become Bar Mitzvah. I would like to thank <> for inspiring my love of Judaism. I would like to thank Rabbi <> and Cantor <> for helping me prepare for my Bar Mitzvah. I would like to thank Morah <> and all my Religious School teachers for helping me understand Judaism. Lastly I would like to thank my parents for helping me study and helping me become Bar Mitzvah.

Shabat Shalom

After just a field goal in the first, the Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys put up 14 in the second quarter. Quarterback Carson Wentz and tight end Zach Ertz connected for the game’s first touchdown on a 1-yard score. Nelson Agholor Jerseys Cornerback Jalen Millsnabbed his third interception of the season and took it 37 yards to the house for a touchdown Nick Foles Jerseys.

The defense was active throughout the first half. Nigel Bradham Jerseys Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham both came away with sacks on quarterback C. J. Beathard. Safety Rodney McLeod got involved as well earning his first interception of the season.

The Philadelphia Eagles couldn’t keep the 49ers scoreless in the third quarter. Carson Wentz had his pass intended for Mack Hollins intercepted by Ahkello Witherspoon. Nolan Carroll Jerseys The stop led to a Beathard and running back Matt Breida 21-yard touchdown connection that narrowed the Philadelphia lead to 20-7.

Wentz quickly bounced back on the next drive hitting Alshon Jeffery for a 53-yard touchdown. Patrick Robinson Jerseys The score was Jeffery’s third touchdown on the year and put the Eagles up 26-7. Randall Cunningham Jerseys Elliott nailed a franchise-record fifth 50-yard field goal of the season, when he knocked in a 51-yarder midway through the quarter.

Injury Update: Patrick Robinson left with a head injury in first half and will not return. Rasul Douglas Jerseys 49ers right tackle Garry Gilliam (knee), defensive back Jimmie Ward (forearm), tackle Joe Staley (eye), defensive linemen D. J. Jones (knee), and Solomon Thomas (knee) left the game and will not return Reggie White Jerseys.
