Toldot: Having it All

Posted by David Levin-Kruss on November 13, 2017
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem: Weekly Parsha Podcast, Toldot


We sometimes speak of somebody as “having it all.” But what does that mean? Do I need to have a certain number of expectations fulfilled in order to feel that my life was a success? In this podcast Rabbi Levin-Kruss looks at a pasuk from Chaye Sarah that speaks of Abraham having it all and discusses a gemara that explains it. Using narratives from Toldot this section of the Talmud gives a number of suggestions of what the good-life means.
