Korah’s Defeated Rebellion: Did the Punishments Fit the Crimes?

Posted by Howard Markose on June 29, 2016
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem: Weekly Parsha Podcast, Bamidbar (Numbers), Korach


The reporting of a ‘mutiny’ in the Israelite camp has come to teach us many lessons.  In our analysis of the protest (or protests) in the Parasha called ‘Korah’, we can find many different aspects of the rebellion, and as a result, a plethora of divine responses.

Please let us know your comments and thoughts about the podcast, write to us at info@pardes.org.il.
