Parsha Lech Lecha - Chapter 16, Verses 11 - 16 The Torah describes Ishmael, the forefather of all the Arab countries. Hagar names the well where the Angel (the one who appeared to me & saw me) as a monument to Hashem. In Verse 15, Avram names Ishmael on his own, so we learn that the name of every child by every parent is done with Ruach HaKodesh (divine inspiration).

Tu B'Shevat Shiur - Rosh HaShanah L'Ilanot – New Year for the Trees - Tu B’Shevat is a time for Jews to focus on “the Tree” — the Tree of Torah and the Tree of our own spiritual growth, and our potential for growth. As we enjoy the fruits of the trees and wish for a good year for trees, we wish you all a good year for growth in Torah (keep on studying and listening to GEM TeleTorah!)
