In this week’s parsha, we encounter the laws of the nazir, an individual who voluntarily foresakes wine, grapes or any products distilled from grapes, lets his or her hair grow long, and avoids contact with a dead body.  Today, we have many ways of expressing piety without abstinence.  This parsha is also a reminder that grapes have the potential to sanctify or to debase.  We look to this week’s menu with the spirit of elevation, incorporating the grape (in various forms) throughout each course of our Shabbat menu.
