Many years ago, as I read Torah and the portion about Tzarat, as I read it I associate with vertiligo, a skin condition that causes skin discoloration, I am from Rain Forest, Manaus Amazon Brazil, and I know leprosy condition and how look like, and Tzarat, does not look anything like leprosy, it a disturbing skin condition and I believe that HaShem is too Compassionate to have His Children with such disease Reply

Tweets & Lashon Hara I did not mean to suggest that "twittering" must be an act of Lashon Hara (evil talk), in fact I'm quite sure that on occasion Twitter has served a vitally good purpose. However, it seems that (statistically speaking) it is more about gossip and prattle than meaningful communication... Reply

Volume BTW, Tweets on Twiitter are not, by definition, Lashon Hora (evil talk). Some may be, but most are simply informational. Reply

EST vs CST There is one hour difference between Eastern
and Central Standard Time. Therefore, 8:30pm
EST is the same as 7:30pm CST. The Kaballah program being shown tonight will be at 7:30pm, the same time as here in Corpus Christi, Tx. Reply
