Chayyei Sarah, Genesis 23:1-25:18
By:
Rabbi Danielle Stillman

By:
Rabbi Danielle Stillman
Buried in the stories of Genesis is the tale of Cain and Abel. What compels us to look even more closely at it, during this time of continued gun violence, is Cain’s grappling with the issue of human responsibility.
