Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of His Servant?

Some new blogs

Thank God Steve Chang is back.  He is the senior pastor in our English Ministry and his Sabbatical at Princeton Theological Seminary is over.  So I am happy – I am not so sure about him – after almost 8 months of “rest”… he may not be ready yet for some real work.   😦

School started yesterday – and I am teaching some exciting courses:  Hebrew, Rabbinic Hebrew and Exegesis of Song of Songs.  And since I have so much time in my hands (because Steve is back and I am teaching only 3 courses – THANK GOD!) – I decided to start two more blogs.  I started them with some long range plans.

 The intention is for these blogs to contain useful information for anyone interested in studying:

1) Rabbinic Literature and Rabbinic Hebrew – www.rabbinics.wordpress.com


2) The book Song of Songs (or Songs of Solomon) – www.songofsongs.com

No – I do NOT have too much time in my hands, but thanks to Steve’s return, my lovely wife’s help (she does most of the work – at least the nice work), and the help of present and future students – I hope that these sites will be useful to many in the near and not so near future.

Feel free to enjoy and help enhance these sites.  SHALOM!

    Hi Dr. Rata.

    Sorry I wasn’t there on Tuesday. This week has been insane with the work for my job, and I ended up sleeping through my alarm. I am deeply sorry about this.

    I did find a series of sermons on the Song of Songs that you might find interesting, however. It is a series on romance and marriage, and I found the series on Youtube. I don’t have the specific address for it at the moment, but I will let you know this Tuesday. See you then!!
