10:00 am Shabbat Morning Service with Rabbi Doug Heifetz
Did Hagar Really Come Back?
For Parshat Vayera, we’ll read about the expulsion of Hagar, Abraham’s first wife. The story tells of her cruel treatment at Abraham and Sarah’s hands. However, in spite of her misfortune, many commentators imagine that this episode didn’t end her relationship with Abraham. Rather, they theorize that Hagar later returned and remarried Abraham. Why do they imagine this? What would it take to allow reconciliation under such circumstances? How does this inspire us to reflect on our own relationships, their limitations and the possibilities of healing?
