Parashat Hayyei Sarah (חיי שרה) — Shalshelet: Making God’s Presence Present

Parashat Hayyei Sarah 2014/5775 (Triennial II) -- Shalshelet: Making God's Presence Present One of the most unique "trope" (cantillation) marks in the Torah is the "Shalshelet" -- a squiggly line that looks like a thunder bolt.
