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.
