    Bread & war – Ask the Rabbi

    Q. How can the Hebrew for bread (lechem) be connected to the word for war (milchamah)?

    A. Wars are often fought over economic issues. Not just conventional wars, but political tussles and elections.

    It is also said that securing one’s bread, the staff of life, is the most basic of all the struggles with which a person is involved.
