Rebbe El on Travel and Israel - Acharei Mot - Kedoshim 5778   As a result of the observance of Passover for seven days in Israel, and eight days outside of Israel, the Jewish community in Israel and in the Diaspora, have not been reading the same Torah portions since the conclusion of Passover.  However, this week, as we read the double portion of Acharei Mot and Kedoshim, we have finally caught up to the Torah readings - and Israel is also reading Parashat Kedoshim.  Parashat Kedoshim, which means holy, is like...

Rebbe El on Travel and Israel Blog Parashat Tzav – Shabbat HaGadol

This week‘s Torah portion is Parashat Tzav, and also referred to as Shabbat Hagadol, the great Shabbat before Pesach. It used to be that the Rabbis would only deliver two lengthy sermons each year, the Shabbat between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, referred to as Shabbat Shuvah and the Shabbat right before Passover, this Shabbat, thus referred to as Shabbat HaGadol. Those were the times that most people would gather in Jerusalem on their way for the pilgrimage to give their sacrifices in Jerusalem. Nowadays we have the honor of...

Rebbe El on Travel and Israel – Purim 5778

Purim is often seen as a children’s holiday - because we dress up in costumes, and attend Purim carnivals, and play games, and bring home gold fish that often do not   make it more than 48 hours, but it was fun when we had them.  Children are encouraged to make noise while attending Services, when they hear Haman, the name of the evil person in the Scroll of Esther, the book we read on Purim.  We exchange presents of food, on which we must be able to make at least...
