Welcome to our community’s reflections – here we archive the drashot and ideas shared during our gatherings. A drasha (drashot in plural) is an explanation of the weekly Torah portion, these not only give us insights to ponder, but can draw parallels with our current lives. At every service usually one person shares their view on the weekly parasha in a drasha. However, at Ruach Shalom we sometimes all prepare a 1-minute drasha to share at a service – this is a wonderful way to get many insights into one portion of the Torah.
