Israel, The God-Wrestler

Rabbi David Levine

Parsha: VaYishlach

Genesis 32:3-36:43

Jacob wrestles with a mysterious one, and has his name changed to Israel, which means both "God-wrestler" and "God Rules." Jacob says afterwards he saw God and lived, a declaration of great import and power because it helps prepare us for accepting that God can come to earth in many forms, including that of a man. Rabbi David discusses how the those of us today who are dedicated to the God of Israel will also have to wrestle with him in their own ways.

Loving the Jewish people God’s way

Parsha VaYetzeh (And Jacob went out)

Genesis 28:10-32; Hosea 12:13-14:9

Rabbi David Levine

Yom Shabbat, November 17, 2007

Love one another in the way I have loved you, Yeshua commanded his disciples. To fulfill this commandment we need to understand how God loves his people Israel. This message based on Parsha VaYetzeh describes God's promise of faithful love to Jacob in concrete terms. Rabbi David also shows how Ruth's love for Israel and the God of Israel demonstrated just such love. This is a message that will help you practice God's love in your daily life, and will help protect you from mere sentimentalities and vague feelings which can substitute for or masquerade as real love.

The Wells of Abraham: Jewish identity and Messiah

Parsha Toldot Rabbi David Levine

Yom Shabbat, Saturday, November 10, 2007

Spoken at Congregation Beth Hallel in Roswell (Atlanta) GA.

Jewish identity is a rich inheritance. Rabbi David Levine talks about the value of Jewishness, and compares it to the wells which Abraham dug for his flocks in Canaan. His son, Isaac, had to re-open those wells, because the local Philistines had filled them in. And Isaac went further, digging more wells, and prospering greatly. In this stirring message, Rabbi David discusses the profound integration of Jewish identity and faith in Messiah that Yeshua's disciples experienced on the mountain when they saw Messiah with Moses and Elijah.

Re-opening the Wells of Our Inheritance

Rabbi David Levine Parsha Toldot Genesis 25:19-28:9; Malachi 1:1-2:7

The riches of our Jewish heritage are passed down from generation to generation.

This message will strengthen your faith, and your commitment to Jewish life and spirituality.

This message was given to Congregation Beth Hallel in Atlanta, GA.
