The sukkah seems like a simple construct–shade above and walls below, but it holds deep mysteries. In this podcast, Rabbi Mike Feuer explores why the Zohar calls the sukkah “the shadow of faith” and what it means when the gemara promises that in the time to come we will sit in a sukkah made from the skin of the Leviathan. Please let us know you ...…
 
“’In a Sukkah shall you dwell for seven days’ – The Torah is instructing us to leave our permanent dwelling and move into a temporary dwelling.” (Talmud Sukkah 2a). A mere five days after Yom Kippur, we are instructed to abandon our permanent home and move into a makeshift hut and live there for seven days. In addition we are commanded to shake ...…
 
In Parshat Ha’azinu, the Israelites receive a frightening prophetic “song” about their future failure to follow God’s will, and the punishment they receive as a result. When Moshe introduces this prophecy, he states that he hopes his speech will fall “ke-se’irim alei desheh” -- like some sort of ‘rain upon grass.’ What does that mean? And why i ...…
 
In the closing verses of this week’s parsha, Moshe is told that he will not enter the land which is destined to be the eternal possession of the Jewish people; rather he is to ascend Mount Nevo, to see the land from afar before he passes on. Once again, he is told that the reason he cannot enter the land is that he did not sanctify G-d in the m ...…

The Lubavitcher Rebbe on the transfer of leadership from Moshe to Yehoshua Why are we commanded to bring young children who don’t understand to Hakhel just so we receive reward?

Yom Kippur marks the final day of the Ten Days of Repentance. On this day all our efforts are focused on repenting and earning atonement for all our sins and getting sealed into the Book of Life for the upcoming year.

Seder HaAvodah (the Avodah Service) recalls the approach of the High Priest into the Holy of Holies and the sending off of the scapegoat into the wilderness. With the destruction of the Temple, sacrifices ceased, and the ancient rite of Yom Kippur came to an end. The sole means for effectuating national atonement—and ensuring that God’s presenc ...…
 
Parshat Vayelech describes Moses committing the “Torah” to writing. But what does the term “Torah” mean? And wasn’t the “Torah” given at Mount Sinai? And how did the Torah come to be written?

Parshat Vayeilech records Moses’ farewell speech on the last day of his life. In the opening of this speech, Moses reminds the people that he won’t be leading them into Israel and that Joshua will take over his position.

Nesivos Shalom: If the whole point of the klalot was to instill fear, why does Moshe appease them and tell them not to worry? In Ekev, it commands us to circumcise our hearts, in Nitzavim it says Hashem will do so. Why the switch?

Teshuva 5779 - Teshuva of Love - In memory of Dr. Chuck Feldman z"l
 
Parshat Nitzavim states, “The hidden things are for God but the revealed things are for us,” which suggests perhaps that only God can punish for sins done in private. Could the parsha be alluding to a specific hidden sin in our history? Join Beth Lesch and Ami Silver as they re-examine the text of Nitzavim and its references to the story of the ...…

The text of the Torah states that Rosh Hashana should be a day of blasting–yom teruah–however, the verses do not specify what type of instrument should be sounded to create the teruah sound. From where do the Rabbis learn that it is, in fact, a shofar that is blown as the central ritual of the day? What can we learn to enhance our understanding ...…
