Parasha bereshit 5781
There is so much to say about Beresheit that I am afraid to open my mouth. With every new beginning there is the fear of failure, and we witness quite a bit of failure in our Parsha. Both Adam and his first born sin, and in a big way. What is G!d’s response to their sin? He seeks them out. No matter how far we fall, no matter that we act in direct opposition to the express command of G!d he will always call out for us to return.
