This week’s Parashah has been VaYishlach: And He Sent (messengers to his brother Esav…).
The 5th aliyah/reading of the Annual cycle makes up much of this year’s Triennial Cycle reading, and that is mostly the story of Dinah. She went out to socialize with other girls, and got brutally assaulted. I have one comment -it’s based on Listening to my Heart:
her brothers, Shimon and Levi (from the words for to listen, and my heart), should have given Dinah a sword to let her deal with Shechem as he deserved.
In fact, who knows: maybe they did.
