This week Rav Hirsch shows how a scientific theory can be highjacked. Already in his time in the case of Karl Marx with economics or with Herbert Spencer with society, and this all being an eco of an old pagan god Baal Peor
In this weeks podcast we will approach two points
1. The Torah commandment to tear our garments when encountering death and the danger of falling in to practices of death worship
2. The special relevance that this commandment holds to the Cohen (priest) and his responsibilitie, as well as how it reflects on us. From these two seemingly peripheral concepts Rav Hirsch draws out for us fundamental goals and methods of Judaism as a whole.
