  1. Shalom,

    I found this answer..

    Possible answer why days of purification are 80 for a girl and 40 for a boy – I am currently in Nursing School so I just happened to have a good reference book available. Concerning a newborn female, in utero she has an increase in estrogen during pregnancy from the mother. After birth, the baby girl experiences a drastic drop in the hormone which results in a mucoid vaginal discharge and even some slight bloody spotting known as pseudomenstruation (Perry, Hockenberry, Lowdermilk, & Wilson, 2010, p.618).

    Paul, do you have any teachings explaining what the Apostle Paul means when he says that we are no longer “under the law”. That verse, among others, is always used by my folks and sibs (my age is 56) when I try to explain to them the reasons why I am trying to be obedient to the Torah now these past 14 months. I came out of the UPC (United Pentecostal Church) Thanks and Shalom Brother

  3. I enjoy your Torah portions.

    If a woman and YAWWEH considered herself unclean ceremonially from her menses, would it be okay for her not to attend the weekly assembly of believers?

  4. I usually do not write a lot of responses, but i did
    some searcging and wound up here Torah Life Ministries – Torah Portion #27 Tazria (Leviticus 12:1-13:
    59). And Iactgually do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind.

    Could it be just me or does it look lik a few of these comments appear as if they are written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of the complete urls of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter
    feed, or llinkedin profile?
