Welcome to the Nishma Insight Discussion Forum blog.

The NISHMA INSIGHT is our popular dvar Torah, distributed almost every week by e-mail, that touches upon an important concept in the Parsha, theme in a holiday or event in contemporary society.

Often, readers respond, via e-mail, with comments that initiate a further dialogue. Through this Discussion Forum, we now wish to open this dialogue to others. If you have a comment on the INSIGHT, we invite you place to your comments here; then we invite everyone to join the discussion.

For Chayei Sarah
Not yet available on the Nishma website

 It should be mentioned that the first time we encounter Yitzchak Avinu subsequent to the Akeida is when he sees his wife-to-be, Rivkah  returning with Eliezer. (Bereishit 24:62-67) It is interesting to note that there is no mention of Eliezer reporting on the news of his mission to Avraham. It is stated that he simply reported to Yitzchak. It was at this point that this whole matter became solely Yitzchak's concern and, as Rivka took the place of Sarah, clearly also had communal significance.
