What Does It Mean to Have Faith?

A video for Parashat Devarim.

Commentary on Parashat Devarim, Deuteronomy 1:1 - 3:22

In this week’s Torah portion, Moses accuses the nation of Israel of not having faith.

What? The people know firsthand about all the miracles God has done for them, how could they not have faith? Drawing on the Maharal  of Prague, Rabbi Fohrman gives us a novel approach to faith, and challenges us to rise to this level of intimacy with God and with each other.
