      In this week's parsha we read about the historic journey
      undertaken by our ancestors, Avraham and Sarah, following the Divine
      command to leave their home, family, and everything they knew, to
      travel to an unknown location directed only by their trust in
      Hashem. How many of us have that simple faith today? Even if we're
      not yet ready to make aliya, we can begin to make the spiritual
      journey, looking to the Torah for guidance and wisdom, thought it may
      go against societal norms or secular values. Truly this is Lech
      *Lecha* - for our own benefit, as our Creator knows us best. May we
      blessed to reach our ultimate destination soon.

      Enjoy the music along the way!
