  • Which Is the Greater Value – Religiosity or Unity?
    Our parasha focuses on the “place that Hashem will choose” (see Devarim 12:5-11). From the time these Torah passages were given, it took a long time until the place was identified.

The religious one gave him a quick, short answer: "You enjoy This World, while I'll enjoy the World to Come!" Cringe.

Also, where does belief in Hashem's providence fit in?
