    How is it that the smell of the black cumin didn’t harm Rav Yirmeyas mother?

    Oy the things a mother does for her son!!! :-)

    You mean “Benjamin the Shepherd” (not farmer). Who by the way may have been related to Hillel.

      Koren says farmer.

        Koren has an error – hopefully they will fix it in the next printing.

          Why are you so sure? Are you a closet Aramaic linguist?

            Even the Zohar uses רעיא as shepherd :-)

            Oh. I thought you were correcting me on something else. I stand corrected.

            Also, I just checked Onkelus in Bereishit by Hevel – רָעֵי עָנָא

            But did you get the joke about the Hillel comment?

          • http://finkorswim.com E. Fink

            Nope
