Parashat Vayera (וירא) — Shirking Responsibility for Hurricane Sandy?

Parashat Vayera 2012/5773 (Triennial III) -- Shirking Responsibility for Hurricane Sandy? (Genesis 21:1-22:24) During this edition of Rabbi Saks' Online Parashah class, we discuss the similarities and differences between Hurricane Sandy and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Particularly interesting is how the story of Sodom and Gomorrah seems to indicate that humanity has a predilection for shirking our responsibilities for disasters and catastrophes that seem to be beyond our control. Classes from other years: 2014/5775 -- Raping Foreigners (Genesis 19:1-20:18)
