The Steps on Our Journey: Rabbi Dr. Reb Mimi Feigelson on Vayetzei

In Parashat Vayetzei our ancestor Jacob continues his peripatetic journey to Haran and begins building his family. Rabbi Dr. Reb Mimi Feigelson, Spiritual Mentor/Senior Lecturer of Rabbinics and Chassidic Thought at the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary asks, does God walk with us at every pause and at every step? Does traveling with a known destination mean that we might ignore waystations along the path? How and where do you resonate with the possibility or reality of “Divine Providence” in your own personal life?
