Welcome To Bais Mordechai

The hope of this site is to be educational and inspirational. I see the Torah as an instruction manual given to us by a benevolent Father in heaven to help us navigate our lives, with stories and examples for us to learn from.
BIBLE = Book of Instruction By which to Live on Earth
FROG = Forever Rely On G-d
Frogs only jump forward not backward. So too must we continue to move forward in our quest for spirituality and contentment.

My Thoughts 145 The month of Elul again

Chp. 14 verses 1 - 20: The people cry in their tents because of the report of the spies. Moshe and Aaron fall on their faces and Calev and Yehoshua tear their clothing. God wants to destroy the nation but Moshe argues with God to at least not destroy them all at once since it would be a chilul Hashem. Moshe evokes the attributes from the 13 that were applicable in this situation. God answers that I will pardon them according to your words.

My Thoughts 143 Honoring parents

Honoring parents, why would we be commanded to honor our parents? Why would the command to do so be on the first set of tablets and not the second? Why is it that with honor the father precedes the mother and with fear the mother precedes the father?

Chp. 13 verses 17 - 26: Moshe sends the spies to spy out the land. He sends them to the south. He gives them instructions about what they should look for. He also tells them to bring back some produce from the land. They bring a cluster of grapes, a fig, and a pomegranates. It only takes them 40 days to spy out the land. Ony Calev goes to Hebron to the graves of the Forefathers. They return with their report to Moshe and the people.

Chp. 30 verses 1 - 20: Continuing, that Hashem would gather them from dispersion and return them to the Promised Land. Then the curse would be transferred to their enemies. They would experience blessings as long as they accepted all of Hashem's commandments. They should therefore choose life over death and good over evil and they would thrive and if not they would perish.
