    5780 — Tzav: The Torah of drawing close

    5780 — Tzav: The Torah of drawing close

    Sometimes it can seem that the book of Leviticus is speaking to a world which is no more. In this podcast, Rabbi Mike Feuer explores how the 'torot,' the practical instructions on sacrifice which lie at the heart of Tzav, actually have much to say to us in this time of crisis.

    5780 — Ki Tisa: Denuded of Beauty in the Aftermath of Sin

    5780 — Ki Tisa: Denuded of Beauty in the Aftermath of Sin

    In this podcast, Nechama Goldman Barash links the stories of Eden and the Golden Calf, and looks at how the process of reconciliation begins in the aftermath of such a rupture. Interestingly, the same material--gold will be used to build the Tabernacle and the Golden Calf. What does this tell us about free will, choices, and consequences in the long, hard process of rehabilitating relationships?

    5780 — Purim: Purim and Pesach: So Close and Yet So Far Away

    5780 — Purim: Purim and Pesach: So Close and Yet So Far Away

    On the surface, Purim and Pesach have a number of things in common: 1) we drink four cups of wine on Pesach; we drink ad d'lo yada on Purim. 2) We have a festive meal on Pesach; we have a festive meal on Purim. 3) We remember the story of the enslavement and the exodus on Pesach by telling a story, called the Hagadah; we remember the story of deliverance on Purim, by reading a text called Megillat Esther. 4) We invite those in need to join our seder on Pesach; we give gifts to the poor and portions of food to our friends on Purim. Despite these similarities, Purim and Pesach are dramatically different. In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger examines those differences and shows how Purim can be seen as a stepping stone to Pesach.
