This week in Judaics we are learning about Parashat Lekh Lekha. We discussed the consequences and feeling of leaving your home for a foreign place, as Abraham was forced to leave Ur-Kasdim and move to a new location. It was an invitation for a spiritual journey as well. We discussed the promises of G-d to Avraham and the meaning of the name Ishmael. We started reading the Sodom and Gomorrah story. Your children find Avraham arguing with G-d fascinating! (Genesis 18:23).
