Remember what Amalek did to you on your way out of Egypt...
you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under the heavens;
do not forget.
Remember and do not forget are synonyms. They mean the same thing.
Blot out means to forget. That is the opposite of remember.
What does blot out the remembrance (but do not forget) mean?
I find it confusing. Please clarify. Thanks.
This is a secular question. In my Polish-Jewish neighborhood, the old timers used to say "Yoni-Cohani" when excited. Can you tell me what this means? Thank you.
