Shemini 5777

This is Torah Talk for the week of April 16th, 2017

Is a nesher an eagle or a vulture?  Is an ayit a vulture or an eagle?

Mic. 1:16

Shear off your hair and make yourself bald

For the children you once delighted in;

Make yourself as bald as a vulture,

For they have been banished from you.   [In fact, the only bald eagle is the American one, not known in biblical times.]
