1. There was no need to be concerned if the boy was a boy and the girl a girl. You were one or the other, not something ridiculously conjured up by those denying the Creator of all.
2. Remember when a married couple (man and woman) was expecting a child, and all were grateful for new life coming? You believed the family life would surround the child with godliness, and the child’s growth would be surrounded by proper care and nurture.
3. Remember the times when you knew your neighbors, and the kids played without concern outside even when it got dark?
Todah rabah! (Hebrew – Thank you very much.)
