שמי עזרא בן לאה הודיה

(Ezra 7:10)

:כִּ֚י עֶזְרָא֙ הֵכִ֣ין לְבָב֔וֹ לִדְרֹ֛שׁ אֶת־תּוֹרַ֥ת יְהֹוָ֖ה וְלַֽעֲשֹׂ֑ת וּלְלַמֵּ֥ד בְּיִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל חֹ֥ק וּמִשְׁפָּֽט

For Ezra devoted his heart to teaching and performing the Torah of the Lord, and to teaching its laws and judgments in Israel.

I consider this verse to be a sort of "mission statement" for what I aspire to be. I hope I can one day live up to my namesake. I was born on 13 Elul, which is the thirteenth day of the sixth Hebrew month (counting from Chodesh Nissan), which makes me born on 6/13.

I'm just a simple Jew in West Texas out to learn new things. I'd love to hear from you!
