So glad you're back. I'm glad to hear it was computer issues and not personal ones! I just found out that each of us in our bnei mitzvah class is going to have to do a short speech on Vayislach, so I'm glad I have already been exposed to it. In doing my homework, I came across the following:In Genesis 34:3, the heart is enticed. A midrash catalogued the wide range of additional capabilities of the heart reported in the Hebrew Bible. The heart speaks (Ecclesiastes 1:16), sees (Ecclesiastes 1:16), hears (1 Kings 3:9), walks (2 Kings 5:26), falls (1 Samuel 17:32), stands (Ezekiel 22:14), etc. etc.Can you tell me where I can find that midrash? I stumbled across it once before and despaired of finding it again. I think it would be a great (and hopelessly ambitious) songwriting project for me to try to compose a song for each one.Snowing here! It's pretty...glad I don't have to go anywhere.
