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 […]
When the leaders of the tribes of Reuven and Gad approach Moshe and ask his blessing to settle in the lands east of the Jordan River, Moshe is aghast. He saw a great spiritual failing on the part of Reuven and Gad whose relationship and commitment to the land of Israel was apparently so conditional. […]
In this week’s parsha, Moses speaks, a lot – but it all seems so boring, and disconnected. The Torah is a book – and every sentence of that book fits together, like pieces in a puzzle. But how does that work, in this parsha? What is this parsha actually about?

Meir Elkabas discusses the Torah portion, Parshat Nitzavim, thought the lens of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov. Reb Meir discusses how a person must go up and up from level to level in spiritual growth, but in order for us to go up, we have to first have a descent. He refers to a verse in […]
How did Moses feel when approaching the land of Israel, knowing he wouldn’t be entering the land with his people? This video is the first in a series of three, concluding the yearly Torah cycle, where we will attempt to get inside the head of Moses at the end of his journey as the leader […]
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.
