Cheshvan 11, 5774 · October 15, 2013
Editor’s Note:
Do you commemorate the yahrtzeit (date of passing) of a parent or grandparent, a relative or close friend? A yahrtzeit is a meaningful day when we remember the special qualities of the person who has departed.But how many of us commemorate the yahrtzeit of a great-great-great grandparent?This Tuesday, the 11th of Cheshvan, marks the date of the passing of our matriarch Rachel. Interestingly, of all our patriarchs and matriarchs, hers is the only date that is still noted, centuries later. I believe this is because her life personifies her ongoing historic role as the quintessential mother sacrificing for her children.

Rachel died during childbirth, giving her own life for her child. She was buried on a deserted roadside, so that her descendants could pass by her gravesite as they were exiled from their land and pour out their hearts asking her to beg G‑d for mercy.

With her boundless wellspring of love, Rachel sacrificed for her children in her life and in her death. And, G‑d promises, it is to her voice that He will ultimately listen as He redeems us from our exile.

This week, in honor of Rachel, we pay tribute to motherhood, the laughter and joythe tearsthe moments of silencethe mother’s ability to transmit Jewish identity, and her boldness and fearlessness.

Whether or not you are a biological mother, we can all “mother” someone with love and compassion, as exemplified so heroically by Mama Rochel.

Wishing you a nurturing week.

Chana Weisberg,
Editor, TJW

Parshat Vayeira

Why couldn’t G‑d have chosen an organ common to both women and men to brand our Jewish identity?

By Rochel Holzkenner

At various junctures in our lives, we may face the difficult decision of doing what we know is best, or conforming to what others expect. How do you choose?

By Chana Weisberg

Not only did Rachel keep silent during the wedding of her sister, but even during all those years when she was barren and Leah bore child after child, Rachel never said a word to her.

By Elana Mizrahi

Even when we are deprived of a nurturing mother, we are never deprived of Rachel, who always stands vigil, adoring us unconditionally, then and now—to this very day . . .

By Simon Jacobson

Spending too much time at work trying to make an extra buck? Wondering what the key to G‑d’s blessings is? The Talmud has an interesting formula.

By Eli Raksin

Day-to-day life does require a sizeable amount of decisions to be made. And understandably, there is a fair amount of stress attached to these decisions. Follow these tips to minimize decision-making anxiety.

By Rivka Caroline

Make your own candy – it’s less complicated than you might think!

By Miriam Szokovski

As we cuddle and kiss, feed and bathe, dress and educate, G‑d wants us to always keep in mind the importance of our task and the importance of raising our children with joy.

By Elana Mizrahi
It’s not the fall that kills you; it’s the sudden stop at the end.
