5 minutes

A man who was visiting from Israel gave my husband a small booklet which contains 5 minutes of daily Torah for the month of Adar Bet and I have been reading it voraciously. If you still have a chance to get it before Purim, I highly recommend it for all Hebrew readers. You can find information over here. It is full of interesting thoughts and mussar from Megillat Esther including the following idea.
Haman convinces Achashverosh to make his evil decree against the Jews by telling him, "Yeshno am echad"(3:8) - "There is a nation" which doesn't abide by the customs of the kingdom. The gemara tells us that Haman used this term to imply, "Yashnu am echad" - a people slept (from the commandments) (Megillah 13b).

The thought above and others, as well, can be found if you download the PDF to the link - http://www.parsha.net/Vayikra/TzavPurim74.doc

A Washington Post article reports on "rabbis" concerned about Donald Trump seaking at AIPAC.
Jeffrey Salkin, a Hollywood, Fla., rabbi helping to organize the boycott, said he and other rabbis were alarmed about Trump’s behavior and rhetoric on the campaign trail. “Jewish history teaches that when hatred is unleashed, it takes on a life of its own,” Salkin said.

If you listen to this video regarding President Obama's former pastor, one wonders how many "rabbis" were concerned about hateful rhetoric and decided to boycott the then candidate Obama's speeches.

  1. These 'rabbis' might think of themselves as such; but they are so far removed of anything rabbinic - typical of the liberal reform, conservative, reconstructionist, open orthodxy 'rabbis' and their uninformed, ignorant and misled followers.
