For the new Sefer, Devarim, I decided to bring out a few points Rav Hirsch will be using throughout this last volume. Devarim is considered a repetition, what Moshe told the children of Israel before they entered Erez Israel. However, there is an intricate pattern as to which commandments are, in fact, repeated. Enjoy.
In this week's discussion, Rav Hirsch shows us how a question of, why the high priests death is related to the verdict of the one to be sent to exile, can lead to tremendous incites. To both the nature of the role of the priests in the Jewish world. As well as fundamental ideas of how we view the importance of life.

In this week's discussion, Rav Hirsch looks at things from a slightly different viewpoint than we are used to. We delve in to the 3 locations where Balak asked Bilaam to curse the camp of Israel and what insights these places give to his motivations and how he tried to vanquish the power of Klal Yisrael. We also learn how the nation of Israel withstood these attacks and what makes us truly a people of G-d. Enjoy
