A short video connecting the Parasha to the land of Israel.
  • Why Not Move the Aron? “Hineni”
    We will try to look at yet another aspect of our great regard for the aron (ark) and its powerful religious significance.
  • The Morality of Conquest
    How it can be "moral" for the Jewish People to have entered the Land of Canaan, killed its inhabitants, conquered the Land, and called it the Jewish homeland.
  • Anointing Oil
    Who may be anointed with the shemen hamish’cha? What are the ingredients of the shemen hamish’cha? Where is the shemen hamish’cha poured?
  • Every Dog Has Its Day
    "And people of holiness shall you be to me The flesh of an animal that is found torn in the field shall not be eaten; it should instead be passed to a dog." What could this possibly to do with the mandate to be holy?!
  • Vision and Details
    Our parsha takes us through a bewildering transition of the Israelites leaving Egypt. Suddenly, we now find ourselves faced with a law code covering a bewildering variety of topics. Why here?
  • Nothing Is Incurable
    There is no such thing as an 'incurable' disease.
  • National Spiritual Impact of Justice
    Right after the giving of the Torah and before the many halachot that appear in our parasha, the Torah declares: "These are the statutes that you shall place before them" (Shemot 21:1), which is the source of the halacha that one must adjudicate in beit din (rather than non-Jewish or secular courts). This special location gives special importance to the place of Jewish monetary law in our national and individual lives.
  • The Jewish Laws
    After the granting of the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai, this is followed with a long and detailed list of instructions, commandments, and laws. The mere existence of such a list presupposes the willingness of the population to follow these laws and instructions.
  • The Morality of Conquest
    The people of Israel come to the land of Israel by conquering the land from other nations. This Parasha sheds light on the morality of our conquest.
