Shabbat Beresheet (Gen. 1:1-6:8)
“Turn it, and turn it over again, for everything is in it, and contemplate it, and wax gray and old over it, and stir not from it, for thou canst have no better rule than this.” – Rabbi Ben Bag Bag
“You do the hokey pokey and you turn the scroll around…” – Rachel Barenblat
It’s one of those few portions that needs no introduction, since it IS the introduction. Take a moment to dive into Torah, read the portion (either using the link provided or your own translation).
SO, limited only by your creativity and the category of food assigned, plan to bring a “forbidden food”.
