So, I’m behind in my Torah/Bible study, but I did find the one day (out of my planned 7) of study this week fascinating:
My Sukkot reading study thus far:
September 27, 2020 –
46.38% “Looking at the first day of Sukkot reading this, actually I have to recheck and see if first 28 is part of it because I think it starts at first 29, however it catches my attention at the bottom of the page the commentary says you are not allowed to sacrifice an animal and kid on the same day. So that we don’t become accustomed to practicing cruelty. Nice.”
So, it turns out that pain being expressed by any being is important, whether that pain is ‘real’ or not, much, I suppose, like Thomas Jefferson said (in his Notes on the State of Virginia, I believe?) that slavery degrades both the slave and the slave holder. More on my continuing striving with Biblical Hebrew next week, friends:
Yassas, γεια σας! Salût ! Nos vemos! Görüşürüz! ! שָׁלוֹם
Action Items in support of literacy and hope that you can take right now:
1.) Search for two different resources to translate the word “Hello” into Hebrew.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts on how you like each of the resources you found, perhaps as an update on your GoodReads reading,
4.) Write a blog post or tweet that uses a Hebrew word, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
