Parashat Bereshit begins the cycle of Torah readings by looking once again at the words of Genesis 1:1-6:8. By gleaning through the repeated words within the scope of this pericope, the commentary centers on the dynamic processes of separation, segregation and integration that happen in the primordial stories. The invitation to reread these words from the Scriptures goes beyond the focus on the beginnings of the world and humanity. It dwells more on the important role and aim of the Creator for all of creation as seen in the Haftarah (Isa. 42:5-43:11 ) and the related Sunday readings (Isa. 53:10-11; Heb. 4:14-16; Mk. 10:35-45).
