Congrats to this week's Trivia winner: Jessica Patish!!!
Basic Jewish Knowledge Question:
What are Tzitzit and where are they found???? Extra point if anyone can tell me why we have them or what they represent.
This week's Parashah is Mishpatim. In this week's parashah it talks about how slaves should be treated. What is the reason that G-d gives for why we are supposed to treat slaves nicely? (Other than it is just the right thing to do.)
Torah Math Question
Take the number of letters it take to spell Israel in Hebrew
Add to it the number of days we celebrate or observe Pesach (Passover)
Multiply by the number of sections of the Hebrew Bible (Hint: Torah, Prophets, and Writings)
Interesting Fact about Israel
Did you know that Argo Medical Technologies has invented a "Rewalk" robotic exoskeleton that enabled paraplegic runners in London to complete a marathan. The device is being used across the world and it was even featured on the TV show Glee. Google "medical advances in Israel" to find out what other exciting things are happening and being invented and then share this knowledge with all of your friends!
