    The disease of addiction is a relentless foe. It ruins lives, shatters families and crushes dreams. For years, the Jewish community was reluctant to admit that addiction even existed among Jews. The painful truth, though, is that Jews are as susceptible to addiction as anyone. Acknowledging the problem is the first step to finding a solution.Donate Now

Parsha Recovery of the Week

Lech Lecha

The Torah says that Hashem spoke to Abraham after Lot had separated from him. Lot was not a spiritual person, and as long as Abraham was in his company, He did not receive any Divine communication.

There is no question that Abraham retained his piety and integrity even in the companionship of Lot.  Hashem related to Abraham in this manner to teach us that regardless how strong a person is in his convictions, the association with immoral people is hazardous.

In recovery we are told to avoid “people, places and things” that can jeopardize our recovery. The Talmud  says, “Do not trust in yourself (that you are beyond corruptibility) until the day of your death” (Ethics of the Fathers 2:4). We must use utmost caution to safeguard our recovery.
