I want to begin by thanking those who took the time to send in an answer to my question this week. It is an encouragement to me to receive your thoughts on the topics we study.
Tomorrow night at sundown begins a special holiday called Tub’shevat or a holiday of the trees. In Israel it is a time when trees are planted. I thought it was interesting that trees are being given away here in Pensacola this weekend for Arbor Day but the calendar says Arbor Day is in April. Maybe we are secretly celebrating Tub’shevat.

Tonight we begin the final book of Torah. In Hebrew this book is named “D’Varim.” In English this word is “Words.” This word is found in the first verse of the first chapter. Here we read, “These are the words which Moshe spoke to all Israel.” This book consists mainly of a teaching given by Moshe over a month’s time on the East bank of the Jordan River, opposite Jericho. It is also mainly written with Moshe speaking in the first person.
