כורה
 
This week we’ve seen emotions running high and acts of courage being done in Chile, as 33 miners were rescued from 700 meters underground.
 
The Hebrew word for miner is כּוֹרֶה (koh-REH). To mine is לִכְרוֹת (leekh-ROHT), which is spelled the same and sounds the same as the word for to cut off
 
The difference? The root of to mine is כ.ר.ה (k.r.h), while the root of to cut off is כ.ר.ת (k.r.t).
 
שבת שלום וסוף שבוע נעים לכולם – Shabbat Shalom and good weekend to everyone!
