This allows to inject data at runtime and excite the system. This has a dramatic effect for the representation of the geometry and alters the appearance of the whole system. Nevertheless since the visualisation is reduced to the road as the single feature this is not producing any complication, on the contrary the system starts to buy bimatoprost ophthalmic solution online become readable. Especially interesting in this visualisation is the built in time-distance representation. The basic idea of that if a connection is fast it is short and if it is slow it becomes longer.

Nuts for Repentence?


In a season filled with symbolic meanings, the question of whether to eat nuts during these days of repentence has advocates for the yeah and the ney. There are those who definitely avoid nuts of all shapes and sizes during these ten days. For some there is a deep symbolic meaning, as I mentioned in my Rosh Hashana post, as the Hebrew word egoz has a numeric value 17 (when you add up the value of each letter) [thanks to Devo for the correction] that is equal to that of the Hebrew word of sin (het) and as sin should be avoided so too should nuts.

I don’t personally find this to be the most persuasive argument against nuts, as I suspect that if I looked long and hard I might be able to find other foods whose value was similarly negatively associated. But there is another school of thought that suggests that nuts should be avoided in this particular season because they can have a negative effect on our ability to sing.  (Their husks and meats have a tendency to get caught in or dry up throats and so they are to be avoided in this season when our need to raise our voices to God is so essential.)

Looking into this matter, I came across some wonderful rabbinic teachings about nuts.

Riffing off of the verse in Song of Songs 6:11 “I went down into the garden of nuts” the rabbis writing in Song of Songs Rabbah suggest that the nut is like the people of Israel coming before God on Yom Kippur. The nut in its shell, they explain, may fall into the mud but it can be picked up wiped, washed and returned to a form suitable for eating. Similarly with the people of Israel fall into trouble throughout the year but come Yom Kippur, they are washed clean and restored to a pure condition. In my reading this midrash reminds us that no matter how sullied we may seem on the inside there is an inner core that is pure.

Furthermore, the almond whose nut can be a bit bitter at times, is the first tree to flower in the Israeli spring and as a result is a sign of hope and rebirth. It is a reminder to all of us that even our hidden bitter bits can flourish into the possibilities of tomorrow.

So I’ll take my chances with my singing voice and serve almonds and other nuts tomorrow before the fast.

    thanks for this post! part of my project for the second level of Kohenet training is creating metaphysical profiles of foods from a Jewish perspective to create meals with meaning. I hadn’t even explored nuts in detail yet. I’ll definitely be adding this to my notebook!

  2. Elad The Great Says:

    Well, I don’t think this is a huge debate nor a big deal one way or the other. For the most part, it is just a custom, and an exclusively Ashkenazi one at that.
    Apparently, though, there is a practical reason for it as well. Nuts increase saliva in the mouth and when we are going to be praying all day, this can become an issue. I dunno, that’s just what they tell me. ;)

  3. Rabbi Ruth Abusch-Magder Says:

    There is much more to be said about the spirituality of nuts in the midrash, so your study will be well rewarded.

    Elad, thanks for the info on saliva had not heard that!

  4. Devo K Says:

    Slight problem with your math.

    Aleph – 1
    Gimel – 3
    Vav- 6
    Zain – 7
    Total= 17

    Het – 8
    Tet – 9
    Aleph – 1
    Total= 18

    Although Het can be spelled without final aleph.

    In addition to occasionally fudging math, Gematria people occasionally fudge spelling as well and chalk it up to ‘mystical reasons’.

  5. Rabbi Shmuel Says:

    The word “shkadim” (Almonds) also means “swiftly diligent” as our approach to Torah and mitzvos should be (that’s why Aharon used an almond pole)
    Gmar Tov

  6. Rabbi Ruth Abusch-Magder Says:

    Gematria, the numerical equivalence game, can be a bit tricky. In this case they do leave off the aleph at the end of het to make it work.

    And thanks to Rabbi Shmuel for that nice addition about Aaron’s staff. I’ll share it this evening when we sit for our pre-fast meal.

  7. Devo K Says:

    Just wanted to clarify, you stated in your article egoz and het equal 9, not 17.
