Being Green

Do you have a backyard? Is it green and full of flowers and trees? In Matot-Masei, we learn that God believes green space is an absolute necessity. God tells the Israelites: "Set aside some of your land for the Levites, so they can build towns. Make sure that there is lots of pasture surrounding the town. No one may build in the area that has been assigned for green." It is God's commandment for us to keep the spaces around our homes green. So, let's keep it clean and let's keep it green!

Summer Scramble

Until July 18, there will be an HIBXETI at the KIBLLASR Cultural Center about EJSW in ancient YPGTE. If you go there on July 17, you can also participate in an HEOCALARCLOGI dig. Solve the scramble and visit there this weekend! And even if you don't make it, send in the answers to abbygilad@yahoo.com for a prize.
