Moshe - tending to the sheep

This Son is the radiance of the Sh'kinah, the very expression of HaShem's essence, upholding all the exists by His powerful Word; and after he had through Himself, made purification for sins, He (Yeshua) sat down at the right hand of HaG'dulah BaM'romim (Majesty on High) Here us the whole point of what we have been saying: We do have just such cohen gadol as has been described. And He does SIT at the right hand of HaG'dulah in Heaven . There he serves in the Holy Place, that is in the true Tent of Meeting the one erected not by human beings but by ADONAI. Now every Kohen (priest) stands every day doing his service, offering over and over the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. BUT this ONE. after he offered for all time a single SACRIFICE for sins, sat down at the right hand of HaShem. Looking away to the Initiator and completer of that trusting, YESHUA -- who, in exchange for obtaining the joy set before him, endured execution on a stake as a criminal scorning the shame, and has sat down at the right of the throne of HaShem

Why was it specifically Yehuda who would lead the Jewish people and represent royalty? Wouldn't someone like Yosef, who symbolized holiness and the ability to resist temptation in his refusal to succumb to the advances of his Egyptian master's wife, be more fitting to lead the Jews throughout history? Yet Yehuda's name hints at his preparedness for royalty. A particular incident in the Torah illustrates the inner meaning of that name and how it relates to one's ability to lead.

The sudden British deployment caused the Carmeli commanders to re-work the details of the operation (previously a plan called Operation Misparayim or Operation Scissors) and the re-worked plan was named Mivtza Bi'ur Hametz (Operation Passover Cleaning). [21]

Thus, we can see what a varied ethnic and religious mix exists in Lebanon. And socio-economic conditions have long been used to create friction between Lebanon's different groups. Behind the façade, however, the struggle amounts to one of rich against poor. Better-educated Christians and elite Sunni Muslims tend to dominate the upper and middle classes. One-third of the population is considered poor, but most of these are Shia Muslims. Some of the Christian allies of Hezbollah, like General Aoun, belong to the state bureaucracy, but fearing the partition of Lebanon by the Phalange.

The name Laban means "white". According to the Kabbalah , Laban represents loben ha-elyon , the "supernal whiteness" that transcends all "color" and classification. Thus "Laban" embodies the power of transformation — because it is beyond classification, it bridges opposites and can transform a thing into its very extreme. This is how Balaam's divine gift of prophecy (our sages go so far as to equate his prophetic power with that of Moses !) could reside within such an evil person, and how, on the other hand, his virulent curses could be transformed in his very mouth into blessings, and this arch enemy of Israel even ends up issuing the most important of the Torah's prophecies ( Numbers 24:15 -25) — the promise of the future redemption by Moshiach .

As we are considering this, it is important that we remember to take on a practice that is realistic, that is doable, that is reasonable in our lives. For example, some people decide to say the prayer " Modah Ani L'fanecha " (I am grateful. I live in relationship) every morning on arising, or to say the Sh'ma at night. Some decide to say a prayer before they eat in the morning. Others take on a meditation practice for five minutes a day or decide to turn off their computers for all or part of Shabbat.
