Parsha “Shelach-Lekha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Shelach-Lekha” (Numbers chapters 13 through 15) is sometimes thought of as the ‘story of the spies’. Mark sometimes refers to it as the ‘first recorded VOTE in human history as well,’ nothing that it went badly, and those who … Continue reading

Parsha “Beha’alotecha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Beha’alotecha” (Numbers chapters 8 through 12) covers quite a wide range of topics, from the menorah and silver trumpets, and thus things like, “head ’em up, move ’em out”, to some elements that are considerably more “problematic.” The fact … Continue reading

Parsha “Shavout – and a bit of Naso”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Chag S’meach! This is another special week, since the regular Torah portion is — at least somewhat! — pre-empted by the final spring feast of Shavuot. But because it turns out to be SO apropos anyway, Mark Call decided to … Continue reading

Parsha “Bemidbar”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Bemidbar” begins the new Book with the same name (“Nunbers” in the English, which is also quite descriptive!) with instructions that Yahuah gave to Moses b’midbar, or “In the wilderness” of Sinai. It is also the first commanded “head … Continue reading

Parsha “Behar– Bechukotai”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Double-Parsha “Behar-Bechukotai” (Leviticus chapter 25 through the end of the Book) begins with instructions that Yahuah gave to Moses “Behar Sinai,” or on Mount Sinai. They start with the “shemitta” year, or year of rest for the land on a … Continue reading

Parsha “Kedoshim – Emor”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Kedoshim” (Leviticus chapters … Continue reading

Parsha “Metzorah-Acharei Mot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Parsha “Tazria”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call for a thorougly-updated look at an ancient malady — arguably spiritual in nature — that hasn’t been seen for many centuries. But the Big Lie ABOUT it, and similar things in the “Olde Testament” is just one … Continue reading
