Why Would God Curse His People?

The Real Reason For God's Curses In The Bible

Rabbi David Fohrman
Rabbi David Fohrman


In this week's parsha, the Torah presents a stark choice: follow God and live, or abandon Him and die. Does this just reinforce God as a terrifying deity, or is there something more here? Through an analysis of language and a comparison to the Garden of Eden, Rabbi Fohrman shows us how we "choosing life" will show us the way to cling to God.
