Behar (At the Mountain) -Leviticus 25:1 – 26:2

Torah (1)

Shabbat shalom! This week Shmuel shares from portion Behar while wrapping up his trip to Franklin, Tennessee where he attended the Israel Summit. 

This week’s portion opens with the commands for the Shemitah, the agricultural sabbatical year. After six years of planting and harvesting, one is commanded to allow the land a year’s rest. To understand this unusual commandment, Shmuel dives into a “secret midrash” that explains angels, farmers and the Sinai experience.

  1. thank you for taking time out of your busy time to explain this weeks Portion.
    May Hashem Bless you and your family

  2. Thank you Shumel. When we believe Torah, and follow with our heart, you can feel the leading of struggling upstream like the salmon, who have to swim to the head of the stream to find their satisfaction. It does not always make sense, and is not usually the way of the world, which is downstream. so there is loneliness, but a calling to follow the Torah that brings a whole other satisfaction of being here.
