Vayera: Rabbi Gedalia Meyer's Weekly Torah Study
“Will You even destroy the righteous with the wicked?” Avraham asks of G-d, concerning Sodom. The same question, in slightly different terms, is being put before Israel today, as the IDF continues to pound Gaza following the inhuman atrocities perpetrated by Hamas on 1,400 innocent Israeli men, women, children, infants, unborn babies, toddlers, teens and the elderly. What consideration should be taken concerning the safety of the allegedly uninvolved citizens of Gaza as Israel eliminates Hamas? The ambiguous answer Avraham received from G-d leaves only one possible conclusion: get out while you can.
