Root Connections in the Torah
Lashon hakodesh is not just any language, it is the language with which Hashem created reality. The 22 letters of the aleph beis are the building blocks of the world. Each dibur (utterence) created devarim (things). Furthermore, a word in lashon hakodesh describes the essence of the thing. Each letter has its own innate meaning.
Roots are formed through the combination of letters, and they teach us depths we often don't realize exist. What is the connection between Shalach(send) and Shulchan (table)? Dibur (speech) and Midbar (desert)? Or Boker (morning) and Bikur Cholim (visiting the sick)? Beginning with simple questions like these, we learn deep wisdom.
This is the language of G-d, the Holy Tongue. It is the bridge which He uses to communicate to us His inner world - the world of His mind and thoughts, so to speak. When understood, Hebrew roots describe the essence of the ideas being discussed - and the essence of life.
This original and impressive work explores Hebrew, and takes the reader on an absorbing journey by examining the inter-relationships between family roots, comparing words and unearthing their deeper meanings. In understanding these words, we come to understand ourselves.
