שמע ישראל (יהוה) [אדוני] אלוהינו, (יהוה) [אדוני] אחד Shemá Israel, Adonai Elohéinu, Adonai Ejad Shemá Israel (del hebreo, שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל, 'Escucha, Israel') es el nombre de una de las principales plegarias de la religión judía.

[en voz baja] Bendito sea el nombre de la gloria de Su reino por siempre jamás. Amarás a Adonai tu Di-s con todo tu corazón, con toda tu alma con toda tu fuerza. Y estas palabras que Yo te ordeno hoy estarán sobre tu corazón. Las enseñarás a fondo a tus hijos, y hablarás de ellas al estar sentado en tu casa y al andar por el camino, al acostarte y al levantarte. Las atarás como señal sobre tu mano y serán por recordatorio entre tus ojos. Las escribirás sobre las jambas de tu casa y en tus portones.   Shemá Israel Adonai Elohéinu Adonái Ejád

Ese Hastío (Piensa en mí)

Cuando tengas una pena muy profunda se sincera, piensa en mí, y verás que hasta las cosas más absurdas no son nada para ti... Cuando tengas en la mente un sueño bello se sincera, piensa en mí, y verás que entre los dos resulta fácil convertirlo en realidad... Y si acaso para ti ya soy hastío no te detengas, se sincera también pues mi amor está dispuesto a soportar, si es de ti, ese hastío... Y si acaso para ti ya soy hastío, no, no te detengas, se sincera también pues mi amor está dispuesto a soportar, a soportar ese hastío...  

  "Ese hastío" es un clásico cubano original del Maestro Meme Solís (, muy famoso en la década de los años sesenta en la interpretación del "Cuarteto Los Meme".

12) Parshah Vayechi וַיְחִי

Parshah in a Nutshell for Vayechi Genesis 47:28-50:26 Jacob lives the final 17 years of his life in Egypt. Before his passing, he asks Joseph to take an oath that he will bury him in the Holy Land. He blesses Joseph's two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim, elevating them to the status of his own sons as progenitors of tribes within the nation of Israel. The patriarch desires to reveal the end of days to his children, but is prevented from doing so. Jacob blesses his sons, assigning to each his role as a tribe: Judah will produce leaders, legislators and kings; priests will come from Levi, scholars from Issachar, seafarers from Zebulun, schoolteachers from Shimon, soldiers from Gad, judges from Dan, olive growers from Asher, and so on. Reuben is rebuked for "confusing his father's marriage"; Shimon and Levi for the massacre of Shechem and the plot against Joseph. Naphtali is…

11) Parshah Vayigash וַיִּגַּשׁ

Parshah in a Nutshell for Vayigash Genesis 44:18-47:27 Judah approaches Joseph to plead for the release of Benjamin, offering himself as a slave to the Egyptian ruler in Benjamin's stead.

The brothers are overcome by shame and remorse, but Joseph comforts them. "It was not you who sent me here," he says to them, "but G*d. It has all been ordained from Above to save us, and the entire region, from famine." The brothers rush back to Canaan with the news. Jacob comes to Egypt with his sons and their families -- seventy souls in all -- and is reunited with his beloved son after 22 years.

10) Parshah Mikeitz מִקֵּץ

Parshah in a Nutshell for Mikeitz Genesis 41:1-44:17 Joseph's imprisonment finally ends when Pharaoh dreams of seven fat cows that are swallowed up by seven lean cows, and of seven fat ears of grain swallowed by seven lean ears. Joseph interprets the dreams to mean that seven years of plenty will be followed by seven years of hunger, and advises Pharaoh to store grain during the plentiful years. Pharaoh appoints Joseph governor of Egypt. Joseph marries Asenat, daughter of Potiphar, and they have two sons, Menasseh and Ephraim. Famine spreads throughout the region, and food can be obtained only in Egypt. Ten of Joseph's brothers come to Egypt to purchase grain; the youngest, Benjamin, stays home, for Jacob fears for his safety. Joseph recognizes his brothers, but they do not recognize him; he accuses them of being spies, insists that they bring Benjamin to prove…

The Hebrew word Hanukkah means “dedication.” We celebrate Hanukkah each year during the eight days from Kislev 25 through Tevet 2 (Evening of Dec 2 through evening of Dec 10th) to remember the re-dedication of the Holy Temple after it was recovered from the Syrian-Greeks during the second century BCE. The Holy Land had been captured by the Selucids who tried to force the people of Israel to accept Greek culture and beliefs. A small band of faithful Jews, led by Judah the Maccabee, defeated the Greeks and drove them from the land.

Once they reclaimed the Holy Temple, they rededicated it to the service of G*d. The original Altar had been defiled by the Greeks, so the builders replaced it with a new one. When they began to rededicate the altar, they only had one cruse of olive oil to fuel it for the eight days needed to collect and prepare new oil under conditions of ritual purity. Miraculously, the one cruse of oil lasted the entire …

Vayeitzei in a Nutshell Genesis 28:10–32:3 Jacob leaves his hometown of Beersheba and journeys to Charan. On the way, he encounters “the place” and sleeps there, dreaming of a ladder connecting heaven and earth, with angels climbing and descending on it; G‑d appears and promises that the land upon which he lies will be given to his descendants.
