Parasha Vayera

Posted by Rabbi John A. on

In this parasha Vayera or “and He appeared”  (וירא)  is hebraically defined as the following:

ו-Vav - Tent Peg; Secure, Hook, Add

י-Yod - Close Hand & Arm; Throw, Worship, work

ר-Resh - Head of Man; First, Top, Beginning

א-Aleph - Ox Head; Strong, Power, Leader

This Saturday Sabbath we will discuss how this is the pattern by which Yah interacts with mankind.
