Vayeshev – Genesis 37:1-40:23

In this portion, Judah seeks to make a judgment on Tamar’s sexual behavior without realizing how he is implicated in it. So too do we as individuals seek to have control and make decisions over others’ reproductive choices without fully realizing their situation. On this day, the preacher might encourage the congregation not to be Judah, and instead to give women full control over their reproductive rights—by ensuring equal access to full reproductive health services.
