Quote of the week
The transition from slavery (Bereishit/Shemot) to arrival at
the promised land was achieved only as a result of sacrifice
(the book of Vayikra) and a lengthy period in the desert (Bemidbar/Devarim). In the current age of instant gratification, we would do well to appreciate to the message of faith, endurance and patience that underpins our early history.
(Rabbi Dr Jeffrey M Cohen)
