    5780 — Devarim: What is in a name?

    This week we begin a new book of the Torah, one which seems somehow different from the others. Devarim is also known a 'Mishne Torah,' meaning a repetition or retelling of what has come before. In this podcast, we explore the potential implications of Moshe's role in crafting the message of the Torah, and even draw some conclusions for our own day.

    5780 — Matot-Masei: The Long Walk to Freedom

    5780 — Matot-Masei: The Long Walk to Freedom

    Parshiot Matot-Masei includes a long list of place names that trace the wanderings of the Children of Israel through the Sinai wilderness on their way to the Land of Israel. Is this simply a geographical-historical recording of the physical journey to freedom, or is there an attempt to convey something more meaningful? But even if there is a deeper message, we will also reflect on the search for actual geographical sites that can be identified with the memories of the place names in the text.

    5780 — Pinchas: From Pinchas to the Police: What Does it Mean to Truly “Keep the Peace?”

    5780 — Pinchas: From Pinchas to the Police: What Does it Mean to Truly “Keep the Peace?”

    What does it mean to "keep the peace" in society? Is it about enforcing the law and order of society in order to ensure against anarchy or is it about balancing between conflicting perspectives and needs of various members and groups of society, thereby making peace between them? This question will be addressed through exploring conflicting interpretations as to why Pinchas was rewarded with becoming a Kohen and through discussing conflicting understandings of the role of police today, especially in light of the recent protests in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd.

    5780 — Balak: How to Stop a Plague. And at what cost?

    The end of parsha Balak presents three attempts to end a plague. The divergent approaches of Moses and Pinchas reflect different priorities, each essential for our consideration in modern times.

Curious Mayhem ,

The pod goes forth from Zion

Actually, the Pardes Institute is not on Mount Zion, but it's close enough. For all seriously studious Jews (and non-Jews curious about what serious Judaism looks like), orthodox and liberal, religious or secular. Each week's Torah portion analyzed and elaborated upon by one of the faculty of one of Israel's finest yeshivot (higher religious schools).
