In this week’s parsha video, Rabbi Fohrman uses Psalm 90 to ask an incredibly difficult question: are we, through our prayers, able to convince God to change the course of history? To do this, we go through the verses of Psalm 90 and relate them to our own lives and human history.
Rabbi Fohrman unpacks the hidden meaning of Moshe’s farewell speech to the Israelites. Tying together sections from the Psalms and the Song of the Sea, he shows that Moshe’s prayer after the sin of the Golden Calf accomplished much more than convincing God to spare the Israelites. He caused God to change the very course of history. Rather than building His own Temple, God would join forces with the Children of Israel and bring holiness to the world in partnership with them. This mind-blowing course will change the way you understand prayer, Moshe’s lasting legacy, and the depth of changing our partnership with God.
