This week's reading, Ki Teitzei, contains 74 commandments, more mitzvot than any other Torah portion. Some of the commandments discussed: the law of the rebellious son, the obligation to bury the dead without undue delay, the requirement to return a found object, the prohibition against causing pain to any living creature, the prohibition against prostitution, the laws of marriage and divorce, the procedure of the Levirate marriage, and the obligation to eradicate the memory of Amalek.
The law of the beautiful captive and the rebellious son, the hybrid garment and the falsely accused spouse, the hungry employee and a dead brother's wife, how to get married and when to get divorced—and sixty-six other mitzvot.
Examining the weekly Torah reading through the lens of contemporary commentary, showing how topical and relevant the parshah's ideas really are. Both mystical and pragmatic, this lesson will elevate your spirit and refine your view of the world around you.
