Here are the links to this week's Torah commentary on Lech L'cha from the URJ - The Union For Reform Judaism
I write this the night before the 2008 elections. By 9:30 P.M. there have been 4 robocalls from local candidates each wanting to persuade me that they are the one "called" to take this leadership journey.
I only hope and pray that the winners really understand that;
1. Unlike Abraham, God did not call them to serve.
2. They work not for their own benefit and power but for ours
3. They have a responsibility to every citizen and not just those who "support" them
