R. Yair Kahn 86x86Testimony for Bnei Yisrael

by Rav Yair Kahn

Most of this week's parasha is comprised of a shira – a song or poem. This is a rare biblical phenomenon, which can be identified by its distinctive layout in the Torah scroll. Most of the Bible is broken into subsections either by a space or by beginning a new line, and the words within that subsection are written from the beginning of the line until the end. Shira, on the other hand is written in one of two formats. In Shirat Ha’azinu, each line is broken into two segments, and as a result, the shira looks like two columns.

RYA86x86A Treasury of Humility

by Harav Yehuda Amital zt"l

May it be God’s will that we merit a good year, a year of life and peace, a year of spiritual awakening. May we be able to stand at the gates of the “treasury of free gifts” and say to God, "We have not"; may we pray with humility. Perhaps then God will grant us a spiritual awakening, and salvation for each individual and for the nation as a whole, and inscribe and seal us and all of Israel for a good year.
