Dear Reader, the purpose of this discussion is to draw our attention to the number of places where Time is mentioned in The Weekly Parshat. . It is so easy to pass through The Parshat time after time without giving much thought to Time in the Parshat. There are 111 Verses in the Sidra Eikve. The Letter א Aleph represents God. An Aleph is One-Thousand. The Gematria of אֶלֶף Aleph is 111. The Word סְאִים Sih Eem means to measure, The Gematria of Sih Eem is 111. My intention in this Parshat is to relate to the reader the importance of time in the Holy Scriptures. Time is a point of measurement. Day is a measurement. Week is a measurement. An hour is a measurement. Often we pass by the measurement of Time without giving a great deal of thought. Shortly we will examine the Verses in this Sidra directly relating to time. Do you have any idea of the number of Verses that mention Time? Test yourself. How many times is a form of Time mentioned in Parshat Eikev? The answer is about every third Verse mentions a form of Time. In Some Verses a measurement of Time is mentioned up to four times. My goal to heighten our awareness aware of Time in The Holy Scriptures.

In so doing we are going to take a look at SOME the different usages for the Word יוֹם Yohm, meaning Day in The Holy Scriptures. I want the reader to memorize The Word יוֹם Yohm. My intention is to share a number of spelling variations for The Word Yohm in this Parshat. You will be surprised. God Willing, we will do this in the lesson summary at the end of the discussion.
