This weeks Torah portion details a majority of the laws that still affect us today. However, there are two very large ones I would like to focus on. The first one is that you should shoo a mother hen away before you take her eggs; you do so out of respect for the mother, and in return you are blessed with a long and healthy life. This is to say that if you treat your family and your elders well and you do not let bad to be shown upon them that you and your family will live long and prosperous lives. This reminds me of my grandfather whom I tried my best to take care of during his later years while always acting with chivalry. I learned from him that family comes first, and a successful life is one with a successful family.

The other rule is to completely obliterate Amalek from your midst. Amalek was an evil nation that lived a long time ago. When we entered Israel we were commanded to completely obliterate them from our midst and should for all time. Now they are extinct and it means that we should eliminate all evils from in front of us and in turn we will be prosperous and live good lives. I hope everyone can maintain a chivalrous life without evil. Shabbat shalom!
