So long until we meet again!

Well, another birthday today! A little older, and time to look at the value of time spent blogging, that great diversion. Great fun, challenging, and I've read a lot of pointed, touching, intelligent material. What I've written, may not have risen to that level. For me, time for weight training, studying more, actually writing, and maybe earning a little more to fund that retirement plan. eliyahu36 at gmail period com. Shalom

Haftorah of Balak

O My people, remember what Balak king of Moad devised, and what Balaam the son Beor answered him; the events from Shittim to Gilgal, so that you may know G_d's righteous acts.

With what shall I come before G_d, and bow myself before G_d on high? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, with year-old calves?

Will G_d be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my first-born for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

He has told you, O man, what is good, and what G_d requires of you: Only to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your G_d. --translated by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, ztz'l.
