5775 — Mishpatim: Explicating the 10 Commandments

Posted by Alex Israel on February 10, 2015
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Torah, Shemot (Exodus), Mishpatim

Mishpatim, this week’s parsha seemingly appears somewhat anti-climatic on the back of the Exodus from Egypt and the giving of the Ten Commandments. Rabbi Alex Israel discusses how things are not as they seem and how the laws discussed in Mishpatim are in fact an in-depth analysis of the Ten Commandments.
