Shabbat Shalom!

This week, in the last portion of the first book of the Torah, Jacob, otherwise known as Israel, our forefather, dies and is buried. He is the first person in the Torah to be mentioned as being gathered to his people rather than gathered to his fathers. This discussion of his burial is a watershed moment where we understand that the Jewish people become a nation.
Shabbat shalom!
