Great read by Rabbi Barry Block.

I’ve had friends say things similar about “my Torah portion.” It’s not yours. It’s ours. It’s the Torah portion of the week. But it can be the portion read on the day I became a bat mitzvah or the day you became a bar mitzvah. It’s a different view and understanding of how we take ownership for our texts.
