Let us begin by asking a very broad ranging question - What are the reasons for the commandments in the Torah (bible)?

Reasons From Sinai - Mitzvah #3 'Idolatry' What Follows the Death Of God

What is really wrong with Idolatry? If it is simply a philosophical mistake, should an intellectual error on the part of mankind warrant so much ink in the Torah? What is so bad?

Through the lens of Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch, we will discover the fundamental principle embedded in the answer. 

Reasons From Sinai - Mitzvah #2 Unity of God, to Self to Purpose

With Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch in Horeb

What are the reasons and motivations for Mitzvot?

Mitzvah # 2 - God is one... ok now what?

what does this tell us beyond a philosophical truth?

How does it change how we look at our self and the world? 

 

Reasons from Sinai - Mitzvah #1 Adopting Noble Purpose

With Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch in Horeb

What are the reasons and motivations for Mitzvot?

Mitzvah #1 - Kabbalat Ol Malchut Shamayim or the Acceptance of the Yoke of Heaven or, as I put it, 'Adopting Noble Purpose'.

What does this mean? How does this principle orientate the rest of our journey?
