    Thank you for the wonderful, deep and insightful lecture on Parshat Yitro.  The reference to 600000 letters of the Torah / 600000 souls at the Mt. Sinai triggered my further research that brought me to the following discovery:
    There are "5,888 or 5,845 verses in the Torah."
    I'm quoting this website : 


    So a couple of questions here:
    1. So how many verses are really there?  5888 or 5845?

    2. Why the discrepancy?

    3. Do you think that this number gives us a hint regarding Moshiah's arrival?
    Thank you once again for your continous flow of wisdom!

    If we are all witnesses

    which is what GD says, and Torah is the document we have to refer to , then we should all be able to serve as a witness, no?

    They way we approach the position and task assigned to us can determine how we handle the engagement of activity and the result that will either produce hundred, sixty or thirtyfold.

    A witness may have his memory jogged by a document he wrote

    When Hashem testifies to us at Har Sinai as what He did 7 weeks earlier in Mitztrayim,  is He testifying as a witness relying on a document (the Torah)? 

    I suppose He qualifies as a Talmud Chocham for whom the rules about testifying are relaxed.

Dedicated by Nathaniel Yitzchak Grynpas, in loving memory of his wife, Talia bas Rachamim and Rivkah shlita, who passed away on 19 Shevat, 5778, at the age of 36. A pillar of wisdom, humility, faith, and kindness, Talia's dedication to her family and community in Sederot was awe-inspiring.  
And in the merit of her children, Hadassah Malka, Israel, and Meir Chayim.
