What we discussed: Mishpatim

Posted on February 20, 2023

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat?

Many thanks to Genya Mallach for her powerful D’ar Torah: Why Do I Care: My Personal Perspective as a Ukrainian Immigrant. I will post it here shortly.

On Saturday at Shabbat Mishpacha, we answered the following question in chavruta (paired learning): Our Torah warns us 36 times that we must treat strangers well, including in this Torah portion: “You shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, having yourselves been strangers in the land of Egypt.” What does this mean to you? How can you make sure you are not oppressing a stranger?

Shavua Tov!
