NFTY-CAR: Danielle Wright Talks Torah

NFTY » NFTY-CAR   |   Jun 2, 2014 12:00 AM
The following is a selection from a D'var Torah given by Danielle Wright at NFTY-CAR Kolbo, May 3rd, 2014. As I completed my thought process, I reflected on my NFTY experience.I remember one particular topic. B'tzelem Elohim. In the image of G-D. (It also happens to be my favorite Dan Nichols song!) None the less, after pondering my original reaction to the Torah portion, I began to wonder about how I am looked at by G-D. Because I perceived this Torah portion to be a little ADHD, does that therefore make me ADHD? I also had an initial reaction to this portion being egocentric. Does this make me an egocentric person?I then wondered that if G-D is Holy and One, are WE, then, Holy and One?
