11 Ḥeshvan, 5779 / October 20, 2018
Triennial Cycle III: Genesis 16:1-17:27
Ḥumash Etz Ḥayim, page 86
Haftarah: Isaiah 40:27-41:16, page 95

    1. (16) Abram’s concubine, Hagar, becomes pregnant, leading to conflict with Sarai. Hagar runs away, but she returns after an angel of the Lord promises her that the son within her womb will become the founder of a great nation. The son is born, and is named Ishmael, considered to be the ancestor of the Arab peoples.

     

    1. (17) God establishes circumcision as the sign of the covenant. At this time Abram and Sarai are renamed Abraham and Sarah. God also predicts that Abraham and Sarah will bear a son, to be named Isaac. The Sedrah concludes with the circumcision of Abraham, Ishmael and all the men of the household.
