Last Day of Passover, Empathy, and Kindness to The Stranger Who Lives Among You?

     This week, again, there is no regular Torah reading, because this week’s Torah portion ( for ) is a special reading, in the Diaspora (outside of the Land of Israel, thank you, HebCal):

Pesach VIII (on Shabbat) / פֶּסַח ח׳

Torah Portion: Deuteronomy 14:22-16:17; Numbers 28:19-25

  1. 1: Deuteronomy 14:22-29 · 8 p’sukim ·
  2. 2: Deuteronomy 15:1-18 · 18 p’sukim ·
  3. 3: Deuteronomy 15:19-23 · 5 p’sukim ·
  4. 4: Deuteronomy 16:1-3 · 3 p’sukim ·
  5. 5: Deuteronomy 16:4-8 · 5 p’sukim ·
  6. 6: Deuteronomy 16:9-12 · 4 p’sukim ·
  7. 7: Deuteronomy 16:13-17 · 5 p’sukim ·
  8. maf: Numbers 28:19-25 · 7 p’sukim

   The commandment for this week is to remember having been a stranger, somewhere, and to therefore be kind to “the stranger that lives among you.” 

     It seems that we can  Do Better:


            Pesach I, First Day of Passover, Telling Your Story, and Homes for All of Us? was last week…

  1. The stranger that lives among us still deserving our kindness reminds me of a movie that I took my grandmother to see one time. It was The Spitfire Grill. Thank you, Shira, for this article.
