Dear Reader, 


The next marker on our Jewish calendar is the three weeks; a time designated for mourning the loss of our Beis Hamikdash (Temple). As the Temple was destroyed by causeless hatred, this is an opportune time to focus on our relationships with our fellow Jews.

What better way to do this here at PaL. Maintaining and building that connection between our partners and tutors.


You can find out about events of interest in our Round Up below, alternatively you could pick up a new Jewish book to study - take a look at the new releases we've highlighted.        


Warm regards


Rochel Taylor

Questions from the PaL Mailbag...

I am planning to travel away with my family in August and I was wondering if you could clarify for me the laws of Tefillas HaDerech - the prayer said when going on a journey, traditionally referred to as the "Traveller's Prayer".  (For full text in Hebrew and English see http://berachot.org/hebrew/derech.htm).  At what point of the journey should one say it? How far must one be travelling and must each passenger say it themselves, or can one person say it for everyone?

Tefillas HaDerech should be said once each day when you're travelling out of town by any means.  You should say the tefillah just after leaving a built-up area after there are no more houses, as the plane takes off or as the train leaves the city.  Ideally, it should be said standing, but sometimes that's rather impractical!  Finally, there's no need for everyone to say the tefillah if they prefer not to - as with most other brachos one person may say it aloud and include everyone who is listening.
