BACH Weekly Newsletter - Through Appreciation Comes Vision

11/09/2017 06:01:50 PM


BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

The Talmud teaches us that three things broaden a person's perspective: - "a beautiful house, beautiful possessions, and a beautiful spouse" (Brachos 57b). If a person is capable of seeing the beauty and blessings around him, he will be aroused to see the gifts Hashem is constantly providing us.

Throughout most of the narrative of Avraham, Hashem is continually in communication with him. However, after the death of his wife in this week's Torah portion, we no longer see God communicating with Abraham.

The loss of the love of his life provoked a profound sadness, resulting in his inability to invoke prophecy.

Interestingly, when his son, Isaac, married Rivka "and loved her" (Gen. 24:67), all the blessings that Sarah had brought to Abraham came back into the world through Rivka.

The lesson to be learned is that to the extent a person sees, appreciates and loves the beauty around him, he will be blessed to see the Divine in his life.

Good Shabbos
