E-Torah from Congregation B’nai Israel

November 12, 2021


In the Torah portion of Vayetze, there is a beautiful connection to the song Shalom Aleichem, with which we conclude every Friday night service.  In the Torah, angels accompany Jacob as he leaves the land of Israel.  Many chapters and many years later, as he returns, a different band of angels accompany him as he re-enters the Land.

The song Shalom Aleichem is traditionally a story of two angels that accompany every worshipper as s/he returns home after shul.  According to one interpretation, the two angels represent the two different bands of angels that accompany Jacob as he left, and then returned to the Land.

How beautiful that as we conclude our worship, we recall the angels that protected and guided Jacob on his difficult journeys.  Perhaps, we are asking that protecting angels surround us as well as we make our way through life.


Shabbat Shalom

Rabbi Doug Sagal
