It's time to solicit volunteers for the next two months to write the weekly D'var Torah diaries. I'm also including a request for volunteers to write diaries on Chanukah (or however you prefer to spell it).  Chanukah diaries are welcome at any time starting now through the end of the holiday.  If you haven't written a D'var Torah before, why not give it a try? And you don't even have to be Jewish!

December 8:  Vayeshev, Torah:  Genesis chapters 37 through 40.  Haftarah: Amos 2:6 to 3:8  Ramara

Chanukah:  Saturday night December 8 through sundown Sunday December 16

December 15:  Miketz, Torah:  Genesis 41:1 to 44:17 and Numbers 7:48-53. Haftarah: Zechariah 2:14 to 4:7 (the readings from Numbers and Zechariah are special for Chanukah).

December 22:  Vayiggash, Torah:  Genesis 44:18 to 47:27.  Haftarah:  Ezekiel 37:15-28.

December 29:  Vayehi, Torah:  Genesis 47:28 to end of Genesis.  Haftarah:  I Kings 2:1 to 2:12.  quarkstomper

January 5:  Shemot, Torah Exodus 1:1 to 6:1.   Haftarah Isaiah 27:6 to 28:13 and 29:22-23; or Jeremiah 1:1 to 2:3.

January 12:  Va'era, Torah Exodus 6:2 to 9:35, and Numbers 28: 9-15.  Haftarah Isaiah 66: 1-24 (the readings from Numbers and Isaiah are special for Rosh Hodesh - new month of Shevat).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
