Shabbat Hukkat 5781
The Torah includes many laws that make perfect sense, and stories with endings that fit the script. But this week, we have the law of the Red Heifer, with no rational explanation, and the punishment of Moses and Aaron, which defies satisfactory explanation. The best way to navigate Parshat Hukkat is, of course, with song! What made me think of these tracks? Warning–some of them were used last year, so if you remember from then, power to you!
Now that we are coming back to shul in person, I will be revealing the connections in the break between Minhah and Ma’ariv. Join us in person in the sanctuary, or virtually on the livestream, at 7:55 PM.
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom, and as always, good health,
Rabbi David Wise
