    Hashem provides us with a world of all its necessaties. We are forbidden to destroy (bal tashchis) the ozone layer and the destruction of fruit trees, when we have no benefit from it because it can be done otherwise.

    There is an argument between the litvacks and chasidim. The litvish interpret עת לעשות לה’ הפרו תורתך when the Torah is weakened, it is a time to accomodate in order to protect it that more should no be let go. Whereas the chasidim interpret the reverse ‘הפרו תרתך עת לעשות לה be strong and steadfast and don’t budge as the cedar above when the Torah is being weakened and don’t let go an inch.

    The pasuk החדש הזה הוא לכם ראש חדשים ראשון הוא לכם לחדשי השנה adds up to כמה תשעה ועשרים יום ומחצה ותשצג חלקים indicating the 29 1/2 days and 793 chalokim where a chelek = 1080th of an hour in between a molad and another.
    אתה ה’ לא תכלה רחמך …תמיד יצרוני adds up to 2711 number of dafim of the 7 1/2 year daf yomi cycle.

    We find that Bnei Yisroel is called rishon and Amolek is called rishon. The Dubner Magid compares this to a doctor and a gibor. Hashem is both a doctor and a gibor. If a gibor wants to denonstrate his strength, he defeats someone being considered strong and a doctor cures someone weak and sickly. Hashem, the gibor, will defeat Amolek and heal and elevate the Bnei Yisroel who are weak and low in galus.

    jakk, maybe you are right as Parashas Tzaveh I indicated has the implication at the end. Look at the Targum Yanoson for Nitzavim mentioned above. A proof to tbe Rishonim above is that in between Ki Savo and Nitzavim the parashiyos are pesuach with tbree pehs also between Nitzavim and Vayelech.

    Even when the Jews were sinning at the sudah, Hashem thinks of them and kills their enemies. This was a result of Vashti being so beutiful and the king wanting to show her of. The Ksav Sofer explains that in order to have a competitive beauty contest they all had to dress the same. Vasbti could not wear cloth of a comoner, neither the others her royal cloth, so there was no other optiion than wearing no clothes. She had to appear with only a crown as a punishment for having Jewish girls work for her unclothed on shabbos.

    Health, currently you are practicaly the only one in CR with this view. If people say you are drunk, lay yourself down and give it up for your benefit. The Dominion would be suing you too for regurgitating old news. They made a mistake in counting which would not make a difference anyway. What does 6000 mean compared to 150,000 a 4% difference?

    The Torah says to respect the aged over 70 because of their knowledge through experience. It is improper to call them by their first name done in America as I expect that everyone over 70 should be called. Reb is a designation of respect as they should be called up to the Torah. In Hungary they were greeted by I kiss your hand. A kluger yid is a praise for yourself where it says in Mishlei, yehalelucha zar, vela picha which should be done by others.

    kluergid, by calling yourself klugeryid you asked for the dig. One who faults, faults with his own faults.
    Calling myself Reb is a respect that I bestow to anyone of age and knowledge. We learn from experience. One with great rebbies has the right to call himself talmid chacham, talmid mechacham. ubi, above expressed my sentiments about fraud. Rav Shlomo Kluger ztz’l lived up to his name.

    The Yalkut Shimoni above is at 1051, Esther 2, says she got killed and does not say how, nost probably beheaded, and aftewards, Ahashverus was very upset at his advisors. She held back the rebuilding of tbe Beis Hamikdash, so this was a punishment from Hashem.

    The midrash says, ושכנתי בתוכם I will dwell aming them, בתוכו לא נאמר, אלא בתוכם to dwell in the mishkan does not say but to dwell among us. The holy Shlah says that Hashem should dwell in every one’s heart. ושכנתי implies the years that the first and second Beis Hamikdash will stand ושכן תי the first mikdash stood 410 years whereas the second 420 ושני תכ.

    The above has Rebbi Akiva written with a heh. It is based on a story why his sefer is called Ohr Zaruah. Rabbi Yitzchak of Vienna had a question whether to write Rebbi Akiva with an aleph or a heh?
    He dreamt to write it with a heh based on the pasuk אור זרוע לצדיק ולישרי לב שמחה which ends with the letters ר’ עקיבה.

    I don’t agree. The Republicans believe in sink or swim. People are thrown in the water and expected to swim without being taught how. Some people do not have the same opportunities inheriting milliions like Trump or influece by going to Yale like George W. Bush. They need to be taught to swim by job training and some goverment aid, growing tbe economy by increasing demand which will be paid back in taxes through one’s lifetime. The Trump tax cuts put us in debt and did not substantially grow the economy.

    Wolf, don’t degrade yourself. Your kashye is a good one and I think both the Targum Yanoson, Chezkuni and the Rashbam allude to it. The Targum Yanoson includes his name and the Chezkuni, Rashbam explains it further that it refers to the end of Parashas Ki Savo from Shvii and this parasha is just a continuation and the beginning of the parasha is just a resting point.
