We return with a seemingly unimportant side point in the biblical narrative. But with a sensitivity to the symbolic significance and underlying philosophic roots of Judaism, we can come away with a relevant and profound appreciation of the Jewish outlook.
This week, we discuss a few of the most fundamental relationships we encounter every day and how the Torah teaches us to interact with them. Most importantly, the Jews vision regarding the female gender is explained. Hear how Rav Hirsch takes the sometimes perplexing Mitzwah of Shiluach Haken to a whole new level. Enjoy.
This weeks discussion is very loosely connected to this weeks parasha, Parshas Bamidbar. Last year I went through Parashat Barmidbar and the positions of the tribes, pointing out their significance. This week I'll be doing something different, with a focus on education.
