Shabbat Hayei-Sarah 5782

If God’s promise to Avraham of countless progeny is going to come true, Yitzhak is going to need a wife so that the family line can be extended. This week’s Torah portion, Hayei-Sarah, is all about firming up that legacy. We meet one character who has no name (Avraham’s executive director, if you will), one character whose name matches his personality (Lavan), and one character who is all about character (Rivkah). Where there are such interesting characters, there’s always music! See if you can connect these songs to the parshah:
Nick and the Bad Seeds
The Pride of Jersey
Wonderful Whitney
Aubrey, the Nice Jewish Boy From Toronto
Sweet sounds from Passenger
Roberta Flack
Peaches and Herb
Answers will be revealed after Shabbat minhah, which begins this week at 5:30 PM.
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom and happy listening,
Rabbi David Wise
