Dalet~Resh Shin spells darash verb meaning inquire, require (of G-d), of heathen gods, seek deity in prayer and worship, frequent place,practice,study, follow, (blood required) Psalms 119:2 - "Blessed are they that keep His testimonies,and that seek (darash verb) Him with the whole heart." Psalms 119:45 - "And I will walk at liberty: for I seek (darash) Thy precepts." Psalm 119:155 - "Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek (darash) not Your statues." 1 Chronicles 28:9 - "And you, Solomon my son, know the G-d of thy father and serve Him with a " perfect" heart and a "willing" mind - For Hashem searches (darash) all hearts and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek (darash) Him, He will be found of thee; but if thou forsake Him, He will cast thee off "forever". Do those that darash have a uniquely close kinship,friendship with G-d? Are those that darash the righteous remnant of G-d? Is G-d forsaken by all who choose not to darash? The majority of people in this world desire not to know Hashem and His ways. So, are they "cast off " forever? Shin~Resh~Yud~Dalet spells "sarid" - meaning survivor, remnant left alive; darash is spelled Dalet~Resh~Shin and is knitted within sarid. Does this conclude that all who darash are survivors, left alive?

Dalet~Bet~Resh spells " dabar" (verb) to arrange,declare,subdue, lead away,put to flight Dalet~Bet~Resh spells "deber" murrian, pestilence Dalet~Bet~Resh spells " "dober "fold, pasture The meanings of these "words" are in Mem~Bet~Dalet~Resh. "midbar " means desert, pasture,mouth,speech wilderness Bet~Resh~Dalet verb spells "barad" to hail ( of God's judgment) Bet~Resh~Dalet also spells "barod"spotted Resh~Bet~Dalet verb spells rabad to spread,scatter Resh~Dalet~Mem verb spells radam be asleep, cast dead, unconscious sleep Mem~Resh~Dalet verb spells marad to rebel,against G-d, against light, human king.I surmise that when in the "wilderness" of life, oftentimes deber "pestilence" barad "hail" storms come. These awful events can cause marad "rebellion" against G-d, Our thoughts are rabad "scattered" and we doubt G-d. Those devoid of "torah" radam "sleep" grope,stumble in the daytime as if it were night. However,we must dabar speak,command, declare decree,put to flight with the "divine" utterances of G-d. Psalm 5:9 Their is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness;their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue. Words create or annihilate. Rabbi do you agree?

Question
I am considering living full time in an RV or a van converted into a home, mostly for economic and family reasons. How can I address this when it comes to Shabbat? Since this is a type of motor vehicle, how do I deal with the issue of being in a motor vehicle on Shabbat? Would that even be permitted at all? Would erecting a temporary rope fence around the vehicle be considered an eruv? If I am at a campsite surrounded by gentiles, would it be permitted for me to socialize with them? If I buy one secondhand that already has an oven, could it be kashered?

Question
Rabbi, Concerning blessing of our families, a husband will bless his wife and recite Eishet Chayil, then bless his children, May G-d make you like Ephraim and Manasseh; May God make you like Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah. Is there any precedent for a woman to bless her husband in like manner? Thank you for your time. Shalom jd
