After the Sanhedrin clarified the issue, inter-tribal marriages became commonplace. Both these reasons led to a reuniting of Am Yisrael, which was a source of joy. Other reasons the Gemarah gives, is that the Romans permitted the bodies of dead Jews to be buried which they had not allowed since the fall of Beitar years after the destruction of the Second Bet Hamikdash. It was a day of special korbanot in the Mikdash. A final reason is that it was day when the decree of the death of the generation of the spies ended. G-d decreed that the entire adult male population of that generation should die out during the 40 years of wandering. In the final year of wandering, none of the remaining 15, died. Only when there was a full moon, did everyone realize that the decree had been rescinded. The Gemarah ends describing how all the young maidens of Yerushalayim would wear borrowed white dresses, so as not to embarrass anyone who had no dress and they would dance together in the vineyards.

What’s Wrong With Pre-Marital Intimacy?

Concubinage was an institution practiced in ancient Rome that allowed a man to enter into an informal but recognized relationship with a woman concubina, plural concubinae who was not his wife, most often a woman whose lower social status was an obstacle to marriage.

Tape Getting Paid for Mitzvos. We are explicitly told the age of each Patriarch at the time of their death, but only Sarah has this distinction among the Matriarchs. The Torah tells us at the beginning of the Parsha that she died at the age of What is the significance of this distinction? The Baal HaTurim explains that the reason the letter is diminished in size is that since Sarah lived to such a ripe old age, Avraham Avinu minimized the amount of crying he did for her.
According to the Baal HaTurim, it did not suffice for us to surmise on our own that since Sarah was years old when she died, it was probably not such a tragic funeral that inspired a great deal of crying. For some reason, it was important for the Torah to explicitly make note of this fact by use of the diminished letter chaf. Why is this so significant for us to know?

Polygamy in Judaism and Christianity 11th Jan Polygamy in Judaism and Christianity January 11, 2 ali By IslamReligion In the United States, polygamy is illegal, but it exists unofficially, with an estimated 30, to 80, people living as polygamists in the West. Polygamy is not a practice limited to the religion of Islam; rather, it is something well-known in the history of the People of the Book, the Jews and the Christians, as well. It is only in the later times that their religious men frowned upon it or forbade it outright.
