8/26/2019

Va'etchanan - Eating Elephants (Kosher Ones, That Is)

8/11/2019
More
In the Torah, did God require that His people obey Him perfectly at all times or else He struck them down? In other words, did the "Law" require perfect obedience? Does God give us impossible tasks so He can show us we can't live up to His standard? Many believe this to be the case. But is this really what the Torah teaches? Learn more in this week's 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Va'etchanan (Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11).

Duration:00:04:15

Devarim - Faith & Disbelief

8/6/2019
More

Parashat Balak - Looking for Loopholes

7/15/2019
More
When Balaam asked God if he could go with Balak's men to curse the Israelites the response was a clear "No." But when Balak's men persisted and offered Balaam all kinds of wealth, Balaam asked God a second time if he could go with Balak's men. This time the LORD told Balaam that he could go with them. Did God change His mind or is there something deeper going on that we overlook in our English translations? Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Balak.

Join Lance Slater as he delves into these concepts and more in this contemplative understanding of Korah and our responsibility to occupy our proper space in all areas of life.

Parashat Korach - The Test Of Humility

7/3/2019
More
It's hard to be told something is not for you. It makes our pride rear its ugly head to blind us to the truth. Korach failed the test. A certain woman passed with flying colors.

Parashat Bamidbar - The Big Picture

6/3/2019
More
Sometimes we get so focused on the details of one aspect of things or another that we lose sight of the big picture. The same can be true in our Torah study. This week's reading seems to be merely a litany of names and numbers without any real application. But there is more waiting beneath the surface if we will merely read between the lines. What lesson are we to learn? Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Bechukotai (Leviticus 26:3-27:34).
