This Torah portion begs the question of whether it’s acceptable to use coercive power to have people to do something that’s good for them.
Like the fire that always burned on the altar, we should make sure that our inner fires of compassion always inspire us to work for justice.
We must insist on hearing the voices of survivors of contemporary global violence.
A distinctive feature of the writings of the Hassidic master R. Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter is that he returns year after year to the same source, plumbing it over and over for new insights. Each week, Hadar will look at two passages from the Sefat Emet, focusing on one year’s take on a classical text, and see how timeless Torah evolves.
