What We Discussed: Parashat Shoftim

Posted on August 24, 2020

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here are links to Friday’s D’var Torah on Parashat Shoftim and Saturday’s Source Sheet for our study of Punishments for False Witnesses. After reviewing the source sheet, we discussed why the authors of the Torah would have set up the punishments the way they did and whether we agree with them. Should false witnesses be punished for the crime they accused another of committing? What do you think?
