Pearls of Rashi: Parshas Devorim I

The Rebbe Teaches Rashi

Click here for a printable version.

This week’s Torah portion, Devorim, is always read on the Shabbos immediately preceding the fast of Tisha B’Av. The holy Sheloh teaches that the weekly Torah portion is always connected to the time of the year it is read[1]. Based on this, there must be a connection between Parshas Devorim and Tisha B’Av.

Kidney Bean Lobio

Militant, fiercely independent, yet exceptionally warm and hospitable to strangers, they are fond of traditional, hours-long feasts with an endless stream of various dishes, all fragrant with exotic spices, all colorful and flavorful, many with walnuts or almonds, and lots of vegetables. Georgians are famous both for their wines and for their elaborate, long-winded toasts. At every supra (feast), there is a toastmaster, called tamada, who calls the next toast. Best and most creative toastmakers are highly respected.

Pacifism: a very expensive European illusion — Euromaidan Press

At the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, I had commented on a romantic photo of two love-torn young people, exchanging on their phones on close-by rooftops, for each other’s safety. The photographer titled this romantic snapshot “a tear on your cheek”, like an Italian song from the 50’s. A few years and several million dead…
