Shabbat Re-eh 5781

After being in Israel for two weeks, I am honored to resume teaching the weekly Torah portion through music. I encourage you to read this week’s parshah, Re-eh, and learn about it through these YouTube clips. What do the following songs have to do with this week’s reading?
The Clash ask an eternal question
Hot Summer Night
Genesis with Phil Collins turns pop
Laurie Anderson joins Peter Gabriel
Check the Measurement
Make like Kate (three times annually)
On Shabbat morning, I spoke about the song Mehake (Waiting), with music by Idan Raichel and lyrics by Rita. Here are both artists’ versions of this beautiful song.

Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom, and as always, good health,  
Rabbi David Wise
