Torah Portion Yitro- True Love

Torah Portion Yitro- True Love

True love Marriage of G-d and Israel -Rashi teaches us that Yitro’s life was changed forever and became obsessed with being part of the Israelites because of 2 events. a) splitting of the sea- b) the battle of Israel against Amalek-Israel fighting Amalek proved they had weapons! So why didn’t they fight the Egyptians? Why did Hashem have to part the sea and save them? We know in the Midrash it teaches us that the Sea recognized Israel by their smell. G-d told the sea “that when time comes you must recognize the smell of this Nation who are my people that has my fragrance (ketoret) upon them and you are to split only for them and allow them to pass.” Love is the intense desire to completely self-sacrifice and put your soul on the line for the object of your love—the answer is Egyptians threatened to wipe out the Jewish people and not their G-d! So Hashem stood up changed the laws of nature out of pure love to save His people On the other hand Amalek’s war was against the G-d of Israel so out of pure love Israel stood up to sanctify His Holy Name. This is true pure Love the willingness to give oneself completely to and for the object of one’s love without any consideration to the consequences to self. May we all find our true love and may it be our Creator first who will, in turn, show you your bashert (mate) on this Earth we all call home. Am Yisroel Chai           Please like &...

The fragrance is lemony and quite pleasant.  If you touch the plant, you will feel the oils produced. Some, consider this to be the burning bush referred to in the Torah (Bible). Before you go and touch this plant you should be aware that it causes skin reaction for some people where exposure to sun produces blisters. Despite the lemon-like smell, the plant is acrid when eaten. All though it is sometimes referred to as a herb all parts of the plant may cause mild stomach upset if eaten, and contact with the foliage may cause phytophotodermatitis. More than 100 chemical constituents have been isolated from the genus Dictamnus, including alkaloids, limonoid triterpenoids, flavonoids, sesquiterpenoids, coumarins, and phenylpropane.  A flowering shrub that grows to a height of about two feet. Native to a wide swath of Europe and Asia, including Israel, it’s commonly called “fraxinella,” “dittany,” and, more pertinently for our story, “gas plant” and “burning bush.” On warm days D. albus exudes oils that produce vapors that readily ignites if you hold a match to it, and some say it ignites all by itself if the sun is hot enough. But — here’s where things start to get biblical — the vapor burns so...
