Kosher Technology What is the Half Shekel equal to a dollar? Have a dollar? Did it involve the women as well? Does this commandment still stands for today when we do not have the Holy Temple? And where are the Priest of Yisrael today? There is another thing that I was thinking about what you mentioned about gold. Gold, I believe, is the source of much evil in the world. Because those who become so rich as able to accumulate it for wealth and power, could be the most evil people in the world. They think that they are better human than the poor. Am I right? Being poor is not a sin. Any human being could become the worst sinner. This has been a great lesson Rabbi Gordon. As always, I love your teachings. Missed them for a while. But since I received it today in my email, although I have unsubscribed a while ago, and a few times, without accepting it, I guess I might as well listen to you again today and ask as many questions as I have in my heart and mind.
