Shabbat Experience

Commentary on the Parshat 

This week, Parshat VaYetzei juxtaposes the well-known Jacob's Ladder dream against the image of Thanksgiving. Jacob's Ladder is a vertical concept connecting Heaven and Earth, while the Thanksgiving meal is a horizontal image bringing together friends and family around a table.  For years, the vertical and horizontal analogy has existed for connections. This year, I think there is a third diagonal option.  One that exists through Zoom, or virtual connections.  Most of us are currently living through a time when we interact more and more through a device.  It's neither horizontal or vertical.  While it's not what we ever imagined that we wanted, I think that Jacob expresses it well this week when he says, "How awesome is this!" (Gen. 28:17)  This week the Torah encourages us to be open to meaningful encounters and relationship, even in situations we did not expect.  I'd argue that VaYetzei and Thanksgiving both express maintaining an openness to others no matter how the relationship presents itself.  So, no matter how we celebrate this year, whether it be in person or on Zoom, enjoy the awesomeness of it all.

 

Happy Thanksgiving & Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Nolan Lebovitz
