Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Are You Satisfied? Episode 75

Are you Satisfied? is Episode 75 of A Dash of Drash

It can be hard to feel satisfied in this world that screams at us that we always need more! There is an important relationship between satisfaction and gratitude and the power of blessings. The rabbis of the Talmud invite us to say 100 blessings a day and one of the sources is from this week’s Torah portion, Ekev, which says “you will eat, you will feel satisfied and you will bless God for the good land that has been given to you” (Deuteronomy 8:10). This episode explores the connections between sustenance, appreciation and blessing.
