    Balak - Expansion in Constricted Vessels

    Balak - Expansion in Constricted Vessels

    Why did Hashem offer expanded prophesy, wealth and world dominion in equal proportion to the Jewish people and to the nations of the world? What was the difference between the way that the Jews received it, as opposed to the way the nations received it? What is the difference between the times of Moshiach ben Yosef and the times of Moshiach ben Dovid? What happens when someone tries to access that future world before its time? How can we receive that expansion without our vessels being destroyed? Find out in this week's Parsha Podcast.

    Shavuos-Naso - Greater and Lesser Revelations
