Lecture Description

This week's Torah portion describes some very random stories - like another census of the nation, and the daughters of Zelophehad appealing to Moses for a portion of land. Then, suddenly, the stories culminate with God telling Moses about his pending death. Why does the Torah group all of these stories together, and does it have to do with God also telling Moses to appoint Joshua as the next leader of the nation of Israel? - See more at: https://www.alephbeta.org/course/lecture/pinchas-what-is-true-leadership/autoplay#sthash.kor5HY57.dpuf

This week, we ask an incredibly broad question: what is the purpose of the nation of Israel in this world? To answer this, Rabbi Fohrman points out a fascinating connection between the three blessings Balaam (accidentally) gives the nation of Israel and the three blessings God gives to Abraham in Genesis. These links, Rabbi Fohrman argues, provide incredible insight into our purpose and our destiny, as a nation, and how we can bring God's blessings into the world. - See more at: https://www.alephbeta.org/course/lecture/balak-what-is-israels-purpose-in-the-world/autoplay#sthash.rsjEZVe0.dpuf

In this week's parsha, Rabbi Fohrman tackles a difficult and controversial question - why do the laws from the rabbis end up looking so different than Biblical laws? And even more so - what does law have to do with God and spirituality? What is the point of the legalism inherent in our religion? In this video, Rabbi Fohrman argues that thought without action can wither away, and that law is about finding spirituality in the mundane.
