One Rabbi. One Chazzan. One Levi. Four Opinions. Add Hummus and Single Malt Scotch and a discussion about the upcoming Parsha and how it relates to our current and daily lives and you have L'Chayim. B"H
L'Chayim B"H #21 - Flying the Coup
Moses 1 Korach 0....but there's more to the story than meets the eye. Was Korach an evil man? Or just misguided? Perhaps this was less about him and more about Moshe Rabainu and ultimately what it takes to be a great leader. We discuss. You decide...
L'Chayim B"H #20 - Johnny Walker
We talk about forward movement and momentum, gratitude and the many dimensions of our relationship with Hashem.
L'Chayim B"H #19 - Sinai Selfie
We've been away for as long as we've been counting the Omer...maybe a bit longer, so we were a little rusty. We started slow, but in no time we were back in our Torah groove!
In this episode we discuss Shmita, Har Sinai and why we don't know where it is today and finally why it is forbidden to charge a fellow Jew interest on a loan...but how this leads to the ultimate partnership between man-man and man-G-d.
L'Chayim B"H #18 - A little bit more...
As we approach Yomtov and the final two days of Pesach, which are chronologically aligned with the splitting of the Red Sea, we reflect on some key takeaways from our respective Seders and discuss themes about continuity, dilution, forgetting v remembering which are essentially the Prime Directive of Pesach itself, namely the telling of the story of our Exodus AND making it relevant for today...and tomorrow.
L'Chayim B"H #17 - Hold 'em or Fold 'em
Leprosy, Social Media, Wall Stains, Mezuzahs, Passover, Poker and More! This is what happens when we have neither coffee, nor a L'Chayim in front of us. B"H
