Interruption of blogging due to travel plans.

I am in the process of traveling to America for an extended visit. Therefore for the next few days there will be few if any posts and I might not have an opportunity to approve the comments. Hopefully by the end of the week things will get back to normal.


  1. B'hatzlacha. Have a safe and speedy journey and make sure that you come back soon.
    May everything you do be blessed with success.

  2. Have a safe trip and please get back on line quickly. Lots of us look forward to reading your blog. Thank you!


    According to Hershkowitz, "It is also worthwhile to read the book by Rabbi Yitzhak Shilat, 'The Teachings of Rabbi Gedalyah' (on the writings of Rabbi Gedalyah Nadel, the student of the Hazon Ish), that shows Ovadiah Sforno, who lived more than 300 years before Darwin, proves from textual verses that the creation of man in God's image is the end of a long process that started with a non-rational creature, which belonged to the category of animals, and progressed until he had human intellect alongside the physiological structure of man with which we are familiar."

    Hershkowitz confirmed that evidence provided by Darwin and paleontologists of the existence of such early stages of creation seem convincing. However, Darwin's mistake was in his general vision of the events that evades the question how the changes that moved the process to the next stage were formed. He concluded that in recognizing God's will to act through nature, there is no need to disregard descriptions of the events of creation as portrayed in scientific arguments.
