The Name (Ha Shem) You stated that the name is unknown to you. Does this mean that you reject the name YAHUAH (YOD-HEY-UAU-HEY)?
Please just let your yes be yes and your no be no. Reply

Shalom Rabbi Kaplan, and Thank You Shalom Rabbi Kaplan, I've missed the last two classes, I'll catch up next week. This week teachings teaches me the difference of customs from various of Jewish people as you have pointed out Kohanim blessing from Sephardim to Ashkenazim, is it because in galus they kept what had passed on to their children to the best they know how? Since they're (tribes) so far apart from each other. Great teachings this week Rabbi Kaplan, Thank You. Reply

Each week, Rabbi Mendel Kaplan will delve into that week's Torah reading to bring out a practical lesson for life and explain the Biblical sources for the customs, laws, practices and ethics of our people.
