Vayaira – And He Appeared

This week’s Torah Reading is Vayaira – And He Appeared.

The Torah Reading ends with the announcement of the birth of Rivka. This is the prep for the 2nd mother of Israel, destined to marry Yitzchak. Just before reading this piece, we read Yitzchok’s almost being sacrificed on the alter (perhaps preparing us for our future history of almost being sacrificed at different times in our history. Unfortunately, many of our families were indeed sacrificed but as a nation we would survive.)

In the Torah there are many signs for what will be in the future. However, the bottom line is and we indeed see it,is that we will have a future.

Just like it looked Yitzchak was at the end of his road, he is elevated to a very special level in life and the table is also set for his future with the birth of his bride Rivka.

We need to understand that the obstacles we face in our lives elevate us to a new and better level. We have to work with these and move to our new level, until the day will come when we as a nation will no longer face obstacles with the coming of Moshiach and the building of our 3rd Holy Temple.
