Parsha Challenge 5775 ACCEPTED!

parsha challenge
The new Torah cycle began with reading of Breishit on October 18. This is an unusual reading in that, due to the holiday cycle, Breishit is not introduced earlier in the week. Going forward, the Torah portions are generally reviewed in advance of their reading.*

On October 19, the first Curbside Torah group met to review both Breishit** and the upcoming portion, Noach.*** We will be reviewing Lekh Lekha**** on the coming Sunday, October 26.

For this coming Sunday, if you are reviewing Lekh Lekha, you might want to consider “Lekh Lekha Great Sources” —http://songeveryday.wordpress.com/2009/10/22/lekh-lekha-great-sources/ — and/or “Something to Notice” http://songeveryday.wordpress.com/2009/10/21/lekh-lekha-something-to-notice/.
Abraham is told: “go forth to [or for] yourself.” How are others “going forth” in exploring the weekly parashah?

*In the regular course of the year, the first verses of a new Torah portion are introduced on Shabbat afternoon and read on Monday and Thursday morning, in advance of the full reading on the following Shabbat. E.g: Noach was introduced on Shabbat afternoon, October 18, and the first 14 verses are read Oct. 20 and Oct. 23, in advance of the full reading on Oct. 25.
