Patti Spencer is a trusts and estates attorney based in Lancaster, PA, but her Jewish name is Bayla Feldman. This website is devoted to Bayla’s reflections and thoughts about the weekly teachings of the parsha.
Each week in the Jewish faith, a portion of the Torah is read during services so that the followers may reflect on the teachings and grow stronger in faith. During the course of a year, there are 54 parshas, which correspond to the Jewish holidays and observances dates.
The tradition of the parsha reading stems from the time when ancient Jewish people were held in captivity in Babylonian times. This heritage has continued to modern day so that the teachings of the Torah may stay in the forefront of Jewish people’s minds not just during the service, but all year long.
In addition to writing about the weekly parsha, Patti also writes about her experiences, and the trusts and estates
