Welcome guests-welcome them!

I am breaking my iron rule about “no blogging on Shabbos” to share a thought on this day.

The Torah portion of Vayera introduces us to the mitzvah of hachnasat orchim-of welcoming guests.  I can think of no greater mitzvah these days than to welcome those who are displaced, who are cold, who are in need of shelter.  Welcome them-welcome them.

 

A random thought.  On the way to shul today I passed a truck carrying devices for smoking cessation.  I can’t think of a worse week to try to convince people to stop smoking.
