Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: In Pursuit of Justice Today.
On Saturday, we explored why the Torah tells the Israelites not to pity someone who has committed a crime, but to have them make restitution, soul for a soul, eye for an eye, etc., We discussed the value of having the punishment fit the crime and whether circumstances should alter a punishment.
