Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Alabama and Akeida – Sacrificing our Children, Episode 79

Parshat Vayera (Genesis 18:1–22:24) includes towards the end the very challenging story of Akedat Yitzhak, the Binding of Isaac. The intense trip to Montgomery, Alabama with 35 rabbis and other Jewish leaders with T’ruah – The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, visiting The Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice has had a huge impact on me and this is reflection on how it connects to this tough story in the Torah.
