Beating Around the Bush

By Mendel Kalmenson
What’s puzzling here is the veiled way in which Moses chose to reproach his people. How out of character for a man whose hallmark was clarity and truth! Does not allusion leave room for confusion?

Devarim in a Nutshell

Meditation for the Rest of Us

By Tzvi Freeman
Meditation had once been a jailbreak for the mind’s flight from the body. Now it became a way for the body to join with the mind. In Tanya, the goal of both meditation and prayer is to awaken a sense of love and awe that overflows and sweeps up the beast in its path. To fix up that animal.

The Month of Av

By Shimona Tzukernik
