The promised land – the land of Israel – the land where Torah, the covenant between G-d and His people Israel, is fulfilled in the deeds and the hearts of the people, in the soil and the rivers and the mountains and the valleys of the land, the only land where all this is possible, […]
In this video, the second of this three-part series about the end of the Torah, we continue to discuss the connections between Psalm 90 and stories of the Torah. This week, Rabbi Fohrman delves into the psalm itself, connecting the beginning of the chapter to its end, and relating it to the building of the […]
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 […]

Treasured Reconciliation Activators in the Tanach – #3
Delving into well hidden factors in the Scriptures which can positively advance the Drive towards Reconciliation and hence Geulah – if we only would care to confront it rather than sweep it under the carpet
Our Reconciliation Activator #3 this week is derived from delving into the wider meaning of the Hebrew Word ַקְּלָלָה – Klallah – Curse, as opposed to ארירה – Arirah. The lack of thorough Hebrew understanding and the horror of confusion caused by translations in various Bible versions conceal the true Message and Guidelines for reaching Reconciliation amongst the entire Family and Nation of Israel which had been divided and devastated by Exile of Both Houses of Israel…
Such ideas (as proclaimed in this passage of Prophecy) would be taken as pure fantasy, wildly impossible, not even realistic enough to qualify as utopian. Since this week’s haftarah asserts that all of those will happen, I wondered, then as now, what it means when even Orthodox Jews, who claim to believe that God speaks through the prophets, do not believe these prophecies will or can ever come true…
Restoring the exiled seeds of Abraham and Sarah from the Paternal line to their Jewish ancestry (Parashat Ki Tavo)
“Referring to those who have Jewish DNA from their paternal – but not maternal – side, Zera Yisrael! It is especially incumbent upon us to reclaim these exiled seeds of Abraham and Sarah and restore them to their land and their Jewish ancestry!”

The Almighty enters into a third covenant during Moses’ lifetime as an affirmation of the truth that despite the backsliding of Israel, their covenant with their God who is always ready to accept their repentance remains eternally validated. The significance to this third Covenant and the manner in which it clearly differs from its predecessors – is its democratic element. Every single Israelite is summoned and included, the heads of the tribes… the little ones, wives, even the stranger who is in the camp, the hewer of wood and the drawer of water” (Deut. 29:9–10).
