Every word, every letter in the Torah is used for a specific reason and purpose.  We are reminded of this concept often through the teachings of Chazal where they will derive significant meanings from a word missing a letter, which it would customarily have (chaser), or a word having an “extra” letter - one which it normally would not have  (maleh).  The Gemarah goes even further and teaches us that Hashem told Moshe Rabeinu that not only were nekudos important but that one day, a great man named Rebbi Akiva will learn halachos out of the “crowns” written on top of the letters in the Torah (Menachos 29b).  This idea is driven home quite clearly in Parshas Bo. In this Parsha, we are deep into the maccos brought upon Pharoh for his stubborn refusa...

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said Thursday that she has filed articles of impeachment against President Biden, only a day after he was sworn into office.
