Our Devri Torah is in the loving Memory of Mrs Ethel Channah Sakash Belk, Mr. George Belk, Sr., Donald Wayne Belk and Mr. Gary Lee Belk, may they rest in peace.

Bereisheit [Genesis] 13.1 - 18

The last four words of this Torah Limood are  וַיִּבֶן שָׁם מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהוָֹה Vah Yee Vehn - Shawm - Meez Bat Ach - Lah  Hashem { And [Avram] build there an Altar to Hashem}.  In Bereisheit 12.4 Ha Torah States,  'And He, Avram, went rv,a}Kæ Cah Ah Shehr like that Word told him by Hashem...'  What was it that Avram did? 

Bereisheit 12.1-He went away from his birth place... Bereisheit 12.4 He left Charan...  Bereisheit 12.5 He set out for the land of Canaan...  He came to the land of Canaan... Avram travel through the land of Canaan until he reached Shechem until the plain of Moreh [Teacher]...

Bereisheit 12.7 He built an altar there. Hashem Appeared [Spiritually to him there]...

Bereisheit 12.8 Avram continued to the mountain just east of Bet El.  He set up a tent.  He built an altar.  He proclaimed the Name of Hashem.

Bereisheit 12.9  Avram journeyed southward...   

Bereisheit 12.10 Because of famine Avram went dr<yIwæ Vah Yee Rehd down to Mitzriam...  We could say he got a little off the path because Ha Torah Says He went down to Mitzriam. Later when Avram exits Mitzriam Ha Torah Says, Avram went up from Mitzriam...

Bereisheit 13. 2 Avram was very wealthy...

Bereisheit 13.3 Avram continued on his travels to Bet El until the place hy:h;Arv,a} Ah Shehr - Haw Yawh {that it happened} there he set his tent where it began between Bet El and Ai.  

Bereisheit 13.4 To the Place of the altar that he made there first and there he called on the Name of Hashem.

Bereisheit 13.17 Avram set up his tent.  Avram Settled.  Avram built an altar to Hashem.

  וַיִּבֶן־שָׁם מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהוָֹה:Vah Yee Vehn - Shawm - Meez Bat Ach - Lah  Hashem { And [Avram] build there an Altar to Hashem}.

521 = r200 v300 a1 a1 k20

521 = h5 y10 h5 -  r200 v300 a1

521 = h5 w6 h5 y10 l30 -  j8 b2 z7 m40 -  µ40 v300 -  ˆ50 b2 y 10 w6

Notice the acronyms - Two words are formed from the first letters of .hwO:hylæ jæBez"mi µv;Aˆb,yIw  ymi - Mee anyone, he who whoever  vyE - Yaysh meaning existence.  This says that the place of existence for anyone is the place Avraham built an Alter to Hashem and proclaimed His Name...

Dear Ones when we go down to Mitzriam pray that we will rise up out of Mitzriam as Avram did. G-d Willing we will return to the place that we first placed our tent which was near to the Altar of Hashem where we proclaimed the Name of Hashem.

Blessings, Love and peace,

Dr. Akiva Gamliel
