Now, these are meanings that for whatever reason were meanings obtained out of personal study. I do not claim to be a theologian. I am only a Talmudi, learning the secrets of the grace of G-D just like you. So if you get something else out of these references, please register, and share your comments as I would also like to know.

B’Shalom (In Peace)
