For a groom, the word Chatan is used both for marriage and for Simchat Torah.
The word for bride (marriage) in Hebrew is כַּלָּה Kallah
However, the bride of the Torah is Kallat Torah.
What is the Hebrew word for Kallat?
Why is the word different for a female?
Hello, I'm currently studying Judaism and am trying to attain a deeper understanding of the faith by asking individuals who live it out, rather than going by the textbooks. My Questions are:
What impact has Moses Maimonides had on your Jeiwsh life? (if any)?
How important do you believe it is to be environmentally ethical as a Jewish individual? (if at all)?
I would really appreciate your view on these questions,
First: What's the definition of the term Mikdash? I noticed that the Kehatim, where bearers of the 'Mikdash', "they shall bear", where it is in fact the Ark of the Covenant that is referred to as the 'Mikdash'.
Second: Whats the definition of the term Mishkan?The "Mishkan" in its more specific sense refers to the bottom layer of curtains: "YOU SHALL MAKE THE MISHKAN OF TEN CURTAINS, fine twisted linen and blue and purple and scarlet, [with] artistic keruvim shall you fashion them (Shemot 26:1)". In contrast, when it comes to the construction of the boards, we are told: "You shall fashion the boards FOR THE MISHKAN... (Shemot 26:18)". The boards are FOR the Mishkan, while the curtains themselves are the Mishkan.
And at last: Whats the definition of the term Ohel(when referring to the Sanctuary). "He abandoned the Mishkan of Shilo, the tent (ohel) where He dwelled among people" (Tehillim 78:60). In this verse and in Sefer Vayikra, "ohel" is the general name for the whole building. More specifically, "ohel" refers to the goat skins that were spread over the curtains of the Mishkan: "You shall fashion curtains out of goatskins as a covering (ohel) over the Mishkan; you shall make eleven curtains" (26:7).
I noticed that these terms are somewhat used interchangeably to refer to what we would call 'The Sanctuary' while sometimes they are used to refer to specific parts of the same 'Sanctuary'.
So what exactly is what? And is there a common denomitor between the contrasts given for each case while using the same terminology?
Greetings, I have been looking at the lives of Jacob and his children and cannot find any information about the age at which Benjamin and Dinah died. Are there any records that shed light on this? Thanks
