The Covenant of Circumcision
A Hidden Pattern at the Heart of the Covenant
Rabbi David Fohrman
Founder and Lead Scholar
In this video on Parshat Lech Lecha, Rabbi Fohrman takes a close look at the covenant God made with Abraham. God commands Abraham to circumcise all the males in his household as an everlasting sign of this covenant. But as it turns out, the structure of the passage itself teaches us something much deeper about the covenant’s enduring meaning for Abraham’s descendants. Rabbi Fohrman gives us an up-close look at one of his favorite methods of reading Biblical text.
