TRUE TALES FROM YESTERYEAR

Tell Them You Are My Sister

by Yisca Shimony

Two women stood in the large and spacious kitchen, busy preparing for the day's meal. They kept talking while their hands mechanically prepared the trays. Noise from the street filtered through the open windows into the kitchen, and Lea, the older of the two, sighed, "It seems that another group of unfortunate people has arrived in town," she commented. Shayne nodded sympathetically.


OPINION

Zman Matan Toraseinu - Torah is Entirely for our Benefit

by Rabbi Zev Leff

Rabbi Leff's column appears every week in the print edition of Yated Ne'eman - Bnei Brak. It is included in Dei'ah Vedibur this week in honor of Shavuos and the importance of its message. Reb Yosi and the Chachomim argue as to whether the date when the Torah was given was the 7th of Sivan or the 6th of Sivan. Many say that the halochoh is like Reb Yosi that the Torah was given on the 7th day of Sivan. If so this raises a question raised by various sources, since Shavuos always falls on the sixth of Sivan according to our fixed calendar: Why do we say in our prayers Zman Matan Toraseinu, the time of the giving of the Torah on Shavuos - when in fact the Torah was not given until the next day?


OPINION

Derocheho Darchei Noam - The Ways of Torah are Pleasant

By Mordecai Plaut

The pleasantness of the Torah is what we would like to display for all to see, since that would undoubtedly be the most effective aspect to draw in the lost souls, and also to impress the rest of the world.
