Exodus 21.1

וְאֵלֶּה הַמִּשְׁפָּטִים אֲשֶׁר

11: תָּשִׂים לִפְנֵיהֶם 


And these, the Laws that set before them.


Dear Ones a while back I had the special opportunity to visit a new congregation which is just a few months old. This is the second time Revi and I visited. The first time we visited a man in the Congregation gave us his Chumash / The Five Book of Moses. Chumash means five. At that time the Congregation did not own any Chumashim.  This touched us.  As a result B'nai Noach Torah Institute gave 14 full size Stone Chumashim to the Congregation from our Seforim Fund.


Last Shabbat we visited again. It was good to see the Seforim in use. 


This Congregation was a split off another local congregation. I attempted to bring the two groups together. Both groups were challenging. They eventually worked through their differences. The end results were that wounds were healed and they came back together. However, at the time I wrote this Parshat they were still divided. 


At that time I wrote a number of Letters, spoke on the phone with each group and invited both groups to our home to discuss the matter.  These were very special individuals with different ideas about what was best for the congregation. The division was a great deal about the future of the congregation. There was a load of love and pain on both sides. Thank God over time differences were worked out.  Individuals were trying from many sides to help. Eventually several leaders from each group were able to span broken bridges, encourage trust and issues began to get resolved. 


On one of those snowy days I took my lunch break to visit their Sunday School  It was wonderful.  There were classes for the infant / preschool children up through adult. Scattered throughout the study room in the home were the Chumashim.  What a blessing.


During the visit  it was a privilege to spend about ten minutes in two classes and about twenty in another.  A board member informed me that the older children were making a Book on Rabbi Akiva.  The books were about 18" wide and 24" long.  This is a great lesson for all involved. The love and work placed into the home spun books will last for years and be used by many younger children. They are being assembled with much attention to detail.  I was impressed. Rabbi Akiva was the great Torah Sage I wrote of in the Dedication of Gematria And Mysticism IN Genesis.


In another class the Teacher informed the students that this Parshat had the most Mitzvot of all the Parshat in Ha Torah.  She used several vivid examples to convey an important meaning to her students.  She told the students, that what they already possess, is worth more than if they won a great deal of money from the lottery... and she brought her point home with more examples...


The infant / preschool children were joined by several parents.  It is especially pleasing to see parents involved  taking an interest in their child's education.  When the parent is involved it tells the child the message is important.  The children were learning the Aleph Bet and saying the names of different clothing in Hebrew. 


Dear Ones it was real good to see this start up congregation in action. It was even better when all the differences were worked out between the two groups and everyone united in Love.


This brings to the forefront an important message.  When ever congregations do not agree, or families do not agree, or husbands and wives do not agree Ha Torah still requires obedience and conformity. There is great reward in obedience!!


God Willing we are going to examine the Mysticism of Shemot 21.1.

וְאֵלֶּה הַמִּשְׁפָּטִים אֲשֶׁר

11: תָּשִׂים לִפְנֵיהֶם 


And these, the Laws that are set before them.


The Sages Say it's like preparing a banquet of many excellent foods that will entice one to eat.  The purpose of learning these Laws is to Observe them. 


וְאֵלֶּה

Vih Ay Lehh - And These

ו6 א1 ל30 ה5 = 42 

הַמִּשְׁפָּטִים

Ha Meesh Paw Teem

The Laws / Judgments

ה5 מ40 ש300 פ80 ט9 י10 ם40 = 484


Total

42 + 484 = 526


These are the Laws that came to our father Abraham in a Vision.


Genesis 15.1

 אַחַר ׀ הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה הָיָה דְבַר־יְהוָֹה אֶל־אַבְרָם בַּמַּחֲזֶה לֵאמֹר אַל־תִּירָא אַבְרָם אָנֹכִי מָגֵן לָךְ

11: שְׂכָרְךָ הַרְבֵּה מְאֹד

Genesis 15.1

After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a Vision, saying, Fear not, Abram; I am your shield, and your reward will be great.


הָיָה דְבַר־יְהוָֹה אֶל־אַבְרָם

the word of the Lord came to Abram

ה5 י10 ה5 = 20

ד4 ב2 ר200 = 206 

26 =

א1 ל30 = 31

א1 ב2 ר200 ם40 = 243

Total is 20 + 206 + 26 + 31 + 243 = 526


When one observes the Laws of Ha Torah the obedience to the Laws have a reward... They have a blessing.


וַאֲבָרְכָה מְבָרֲכֶיךָ

Vah Ah Vaw Rih Chaw

Mih Vaw Rah Cheh Chaw

And I will Bless from Your Blessing

ו6  א1  ב2  ר200 כ20  ה 5 = 234

מ40  ב2  ר200  כ20  י10 ך20  = 292

Total is 234 + 292 = 526
