    …in my mind, they are more alike than they seem. Take their strengths, for instance. Deborah’s strength is out there, commanding her army and being a leader. Miriam’s strength as a physical and spiritual healer of her people, may not be as outwardly visible but is most certainly there.

    …teach me the entire Torah, all of it, while I stand on one foot.” Shammai instantly drove him away with a builder’s measuring rod he happened to have in his hand.

    …e this is likely to be remembered more than a simple statement of law. For instance, I was intrigued by this story and its placement, and decided to discuss it today. Perhaps its position in Leviticus is meant to make us question and give it attention.

    …that “those of us who resisted prior to 1967 faced minor harassments. For instance, I did not have my reserve card so I had to wait a year to obtain my driver’s licence.”7 After the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, a new dimension was added to the question of military service.
