This evening is the start of Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) in Israel, a day that unites its citizens in mourning for their fallen who sacrificed their lives for the existence of this country.

Kees writes, "After living in different places around the world, I have gotten to a place where I don’t really know where I belong. I wonder if that is the feeling our father Avraham had."
Moran writes, "Why was leprosy such an issue in the Bible? In this week’s reading, the issue of leprosy comes up, and God is very precise in His instructions regarding how to handle the disease."
