~ This Week’s Torah Trivia ~

Last Week’s Question:  In Re’eh we find the section which will make a missionary cringe and stop trying to convert Jews. What is it?

Answer: Deuteronomy 13:1-12 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, etc….. READ IT FOR YOURSELF

This Week’s Question: What big idea is found at the beginning of this sedrah?
