Quote of the week
The influence of the Bible on the English language is enormous, and the name of today’s sidrah is but one example of such a borrowing. Eikev means, literally, ‘a heel’, but the Torah applies it figuratively, in the sense of ‘following on after’, ‘to be a consequence or corollary of’. Hence the opening phrase, Vehayah eikev tishme’un, ‘And it shall be that, on account of your having hearkened to… “This directly inspired the term, ‘following at the heels of’. (Rabbi Dr Jeffrey M Cohen)
