Lori's Verses

This year is a leap year, both in the Jewish calendar, and in the Gregorian.  February has 29 days, and the Jewish calendar gives us a full extra month.  Adar I & Adar II.  In a leap year, Purim is celebrated on 14 Adar II, but on 14 Adar I, we celebrate a “Small Purim”.  There are no major celebrations, and interestingly, the very last law in the first book (Orach Chaim) of the Code of Jewish Law says, “It is proper to add something extra to the meal in honor of Purim Katan as the verse in Mishlei (15:15) says “v’tov lev mishteh tamid- And one who has a good heart will feast continuously”.

Lori Beck is a good friend of ours and has been active in the Jewish community for decades. In the past few years, she’s had a couple spats with breast cancer (May G-d keep her healthy until 120 years and beyond!).

She wrote an article in the most recent Partner Appreciation Report about her journey with faith and trust in G-d, which I hope you’ve read.  It’s very inspiring.

Her journey has brought her closer to G-d, and she’s been reading Torah every day.  A couple months ago, she sent me a list of verses that she compiled.  Verses that stood out most and gave her strength.

I read through the list, and indeed it is profound.  

You could write an entire book on these Verses.
