What we discussed: Ha’azinu

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: I told you so.

On Saturday, we discussed the reason for the metaphor for God as the Rock of the Jewish people. Is it that rocks are strong? That rocks are immovable? Is it that rocks are constant? And are rocks perfect or not – and what does that do for our understanding of God in this metaphor? We also noticed that it was striking the rock at Meribah that is given as the reason why Moses was not allowed to enter the land of Israel. What do you think? Here is a link to the Source Sheet.

Shavua Tov!
