My thanks to Quarkstomper, Eowyn9 and Ramara (I'll forego thanking myself) each of whom authored a D'var Torah diary during December.  Three of our diaries actually made Community Spotlight!  So the time has come to ask for volunteers for the month of January:

January 5:  Shemot:  Torah:  Exodus 1:1 to 6:1; Haftarah:  Choice of 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 end of chapter 9, and Numbers 28:9-15; Haftarah: Isaiah 66:1-24.  (This is Shabbat Rosh Hodesh, the first day of the month of Shevat, and the second Torah reading and reading from Isaiah are special for Rosh Hodesh).  

January 19:  Bo:  Torah:  Exodus 10:1 to 13:16.  Haftarah:  Jeremiah 46: 13-28.

January 26:  Beshallach:  Torah:  Exodus 13-17 to 17:16.  Haftarah:  Judges 4:4 to 5:31.  (This is Shabbat Shirah, the Shabbat of Song, for the Song of the Crossing of the Red Sea and the Song of Deborah.  It is also the minor Jewish holiday of Tu BeShevat, the New Year for Trees). JLan

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.
