As We Look Back at Our Inner Sedom, We Become Salt

The story of Lot’s wife is not just an ancient narrative; it continues to play a role in Jewish life. At every Shabbos and holiday meal, we have salt on the table, and we also dip our bread into salt. Why? One of the reasons is to remember Lot’s wife who turned into salt and to rectify her sin. 

But why? Why is the story of Lot’s wife so significant as to be reminded of it at every Shabbos meal for millennia? And how are we rectifying her behavior of looking back at Sodom by dipping our bread in salt?

Why indeed did Lot’s wife look back? Why couldn’t Lot’s wife control herself? What was so tempting about looking back? And why did she become, of all things, a pillar of salt?
