    Is There a Spiritual Meaning to the Structure of the Mishkan?

    /playlist/seeing-gods-face-in-the-mishkan

    In Parshat Terumah, we are given explicit instruction about how to build the Mishkan, the Tabernacle that traveled with the nation of Israel through the desert. But maybe there’s more than meets the eye. Join Rabbi Fohrman as he explores what the mishkan represents. It may teach us something about God’s image, and even our own relationship to our physical bodies. Enjoyed this video? There's more to discover. Join Rabbi Fohrman as he continues to explore these ideas in this video for Parshat Tetzaveh.

            A Tale of Two Names: Why Were There Days of Creation?

            /playlist/tale-of-two-names-days-of-creation

            Why were there six days of creation, at all? It seems like such a quaint notion, the universe being created in 6 days. But you didn't have to be a rocket scientist from the 21st century to realize that an Elenterprise like the universe might take a little more than the 6 days to construct. And you likewise don't have to be the world's most sophisticated scientist to realize that it's pretty hard to get days, in the traditional sense, without the sun and the solar system - which, inconveniently enough, only show up on day 4. So, what's with the days? Why does the Torah insist on them? In this course, we'll take a close look at the text of the Torah, with an eye toward solving these mysteries.PremiumYesYesNoRabbi David Fohrman

                    "Love your neighbor as yourself". Really? As mySELF? Seems like quite a tall order. Easier said than done. Join Beth Lesch in exploring what it is all about in this video. "Ve'ahavta l're'echa kamocha" – "Love your neighbor as yourself" – that’s an easy mitzvah, right? Errrr, not so much. To love your neighbor as yourself… that sounds like a pretty tall order! How many of us can actually say: “Yep, I love my neighbors as much as I love myself”? And yet it’s a mitzvah in the Torah! So are we all just failing horribly at keeping the Torah? Could be. But maybe not. What if this mitzvah doesn’t quite mean what it sounds like it means? What if there’s a nuance to it that we’re missing?  There would only be one way to know. You see, we hear this mitzvah quoted all the time as a standalone sound bite, but in the Torah, it is a part of a conversation, a flow of logical ideas. To truly understand "Ve'ahavta l're'echa kamocha," we can't just examine it alone. We’d have to open up the Torah to Leviticus 19 and read this mitzvah in its context. When we do, perhaps we'll be able to see it in a whole new light. In this video, Rabbi Fohrman does just that and shows that the mitzvah of "Love your neighbor as yourself" is easier to do than you might think. Not only that, but it has the power to seriously elevate your most troubled relationships.FreeYesNoNoBeth LeschLoving, Your, Neighbor, As, Yourself

                            ¿Cómo podemos responder a la pregunta sobre las cualidades que nos hace ser “buenos” seres humanos en los ojos de Dios? Este video analiza los versículos de dos diferentes discursos en la Biblia, uno de Moshé y otro de Mica, sobre qué es específicamente lo que pide Dios de nosotros. En Parashat Ekev, leemos que Moshé le dice al pueblo exactamente lo que Dios pretende que hagamos en la vida - pero el profeta MIca, hace un discurso similar muchas generaciones después donde exhorta al pueblo de una manera muy distinta. ¿Por qué? El Rabino Fohrman nos lleva al discurso de Mica para ver lo que nos dice la Biblia sobre los pilares básicos que definen a una buena persona.FreeNoNoNoRabbi David FohrmanCómo, ser, una, persona, buena, de, acuerdo, a, la, Biblia

                              En la perasha de esta semana, se nos presentan las leyes que aplican cuando un judío tiene un esclavo judío. La esclavitud bíblica en Deuteronomio es extraña: ¿le damos regalos a nuestros exclavos? Si se quieren quedar, ¿Debemos perforar su oreja? Puede ser difícil relacionarse con estas antiguas leyes de esclavitud judía, que no parecen ser muy relevantes miles de años después. ¿Cómo debemos entender estas extrañas leyes de esclavitud en el contexto moderno? El Rabino Fohrman nos lleva a través de estas peculiares leyes para mostrarnos que la Biblia nos está recordando sobre nuestra propia experiencia de esclavitud nacional en Egipto. Al hacerlo, descubre una guía moderna sobre cómo debemos dejar ir a aquellos que trabajan con nosotros con gracia y empatía.FreeNoNoNoRabbi David FohrmanLos, sorprendentes, orígenes, de, las, Leyes, sobre, esclavitud

                                When things go wrong with a friend, it can seem impossible to go back to the way things were. Is it truly impossible? Join Imu and Rabbi Fohrman to find out. Tisha B'Av is the day we’re supposed to mourn and cry. But what does effective mourning look like? Is there a model in the Bible for it? Join Rabbi Fohrman as he explores this pivotal question by re-examining the story of Rachel – the mother of our people – referred to in the Book of Jeremiah. The vision of Rachel weeping on high in the realms of heaven may offer a new understanding of mourning – and a whole new way to think about Tisha B’Av. What was it about Rachel and her tears that made such an impact? Revisit the bitter struggle of Rachel and you’ll gain an entirely new perspective on relationships, empathy, and the power of mourning.FreeYesNoNoImmanuel ShalevHow, To, Heal, a, Broken, Relationship

In this video, Rabbi Fohrman makes the argument that perhaps these three people are actually one person, going through three stages of an ongoing story. As we go through the stages of this potential downfall of an individual, Rabbi Fohrman shows the importance of serving God with happiness.NoNoNoRabbi David FohrmanNitzavim, The, Pursuit, of, Happiness

                                                      Parshat Bamidbar is the first Parsha in the book of Bamidbar. Strangely enough, the names our Sages give to the Books of Torah often don’t line up with the Hebrew. Case in point, the Sages call Bamidbar “Sefer Hapikudim,” or the Book of Numbers. But what do numbers have to do with Bamidbar? Sure, the Israelites are counted in the beginning, but why is the whole book called Numbers? Is there actually a theme being presented in the title? And for that matter, are all of the Sages' titles actually presenting a bigger idea? Join Rabbi Fohrman and a special guest star (Arielle Fohrman!) as they explore these fascinating questions and their implications for the larger narrative of the Torah.PremiumNoYesYesRabbi David Fohrmanwhat does the book of numbers mean, bamidbar meaning, meaning of the book of numbers in the bible summary, book of numbers meaning

                                                      In Parshat Shoftim, we're given a detailed list of instructions as to how to establish a justice system. Yet there are seemingly random topics woven into these instructions, like idolatry, and how to properly offer an animal to God. Is there a reason for these odd interludes? Are they telling us something important about the justice system?

                                                      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 is it stated as an introduction to the song? Join Daniel Loewenstein and Ami Silver as they explore the hidden layers of meaning in Ha’azinu, and the crucial questions it raises for us today.PremiumNoYesYesDaniel LoewensteinParshat, Ha’azinu, Is, This, The, Song, of, Doom

He gives them blessings before taking his final departure. He then ascends a mountain and is laid to rest in an unknown burial place. Or is it? A careful reading of Moshe’s blessings may give us clues as to where he was buried. The significance of this is not so much about identifying the geographical location of his grave, as it is about teaching us a profound lesson in loyalty, brotherhood and redeeming unfulfilled dreams.

                                                        We learn in Parshat Ki Tisa about the infamous sin the Israelite’s committed by creating the Golden Calf. But there’s something very unclear about this story — why would the Israelites want to build a Golden Calf? It's not like people today want to build and pray to idols, so why would the Israelites? Join Rabbi Fohrman and Imu as they explore the text of the Golden Calf and debate the real reason the people wanted to build a new “godly” figure. You’ll never think of the Golden Calf the same way again.PremiumNoYesYesRabbi David Fohrmanwhy a golden calf, why did israel make a golden calf, sin of the golden calf, golden calf symbolism

                                                        The Bible uses many names to refer to God, the two most well-known being Elokim and YHVH (an unpronounceable name composed of the Hebrew letters <em>yud-hey-vav-hey</em>). What do these names mean, and why do they appear when they do? This is one of the Bible's greatest mysteries. Perhaps even more mysterious is that we find the highly uncommon "YHVH Elokim" — a combination of these two names — in the Bible's opening pages: in the story of God's creation of the world. Join Rabbi Fohrman for an exploration of what these names mean on their own, what they mean in combination, and how understanding God's names can, perhaps, help us to lead more godly lives.PremiumNoYesNoRabbi David FohrmanTale, of, Two, Names, Elokim, and, YHVH

                                                          In Parshat Va’etchanan, the Israelites are forbidden from intermarrying with the Canaanite nations when they enter the land of Israel. While the rationale for this commandment may seem straightforward, its language echoes another story of a foreign nation, namely the story of the brutal mistreatment of Dina in Genesis. What do the Canaanites and Shechem have in common? Join Daniel Loewenstein and Beth Lesch as they re-examine these two narratives and explore the Torah’s understanding of how to both work with and manage the values of the foreign nations around us today.FreeNoNoYesDaniel Loewensteinjewish assimilation, shechem in the bible, city of shechem, hebrew definition of marriage

He’s laying out conditions of what God will expect, and what they can expect in return. But strangely, peppered throughout Moshe's talk are echoes and references to Akeidat Yitzchak. What is Moshe communicating by comparing entering Israel to the story of Abraham and the sacrifice of Isaac?

Due to their actions, an entire generation would die in the desert, never entering the Promised Land. But what exactly did the spies do wrong? They reported that the land of Israel 'flows with milk and honey' and was inhabited by strong peoples – weren't they just telling the truth?

But before they do, the tribes of Reuven and Gad ask Moshe to stay by the border. At first furious, Moshe agrees provided they battle alongside their brethren as they enter Israel. But this exchange is strikingly similar to another negotiation between Joseph and his brothers, back in Genesis. What connects the tribes’ negotiations and Joseph’s brothers?

God granted their request, and even codified it into law. But there’s something unique about this story — it’s strikingly similar to the story of the Pesach Sheini offering. When a group of ritually impure people approached Moses and requested a way to make an offering, God codified a practice called Pesach Sheni, which acted as a “make-up” offering for the impure.

Let's dive deeper and find out what it is all about. Let’s talk about the Jewish view of marriage. Did you know that when the Torah talks about marriage in Bereishit, it says that a man “acquires” his wife? What is with that? Can you get any less romantic? But more than that, to our modern ears, it seems so primitive and backwards. Does the Torah think that married women are just the property of their husbands? If this is the Jewish view of marriage, it’s positively cringe-worthy. But what if we’ve got it all wrong? What if “acquisition” isn’t about ownership at all? Join Rabbi Fohrman as he explores this idea through the Bible’s first marriage: between Adam and Eve. A deeper look at this story helps us see that the Biblical view of submission in marriage isn’t sexist – far from it. It also answers some of the most fundamental questions about love: Why do people get married?

If the woman chooses to defend her honor, she is able to partake in an ancient ritual where the Kohen makes her drink tampered water. If she’s telling the truth, nothing happens and she’s rewarded with children. But if she’s lying, she has a traumatic reaction to the water and she’s killed. What is the basis for this strange law and where did the procedure originate? Join Rabbi Fohrman and Rivky as they re-examine this practice and discover a unique relationship to the story of Noah earlier in the Torah — and never think about the laws of the Sotah the same way again.PremiumNoYesYesRabbi David Fohrmansotah, bitter water test for adultery, sotah ritual, law of the sotah
