Posted by David Levin-Kruss on July 20, 2016
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem: Weekly Parsha Podcast, Bamidbar (Numbers), Pinchas


Using Pinchas as the case example, this podcast explores the way Jewish tradition deals with texts that seem challenging on a moral level. It utilizes Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ five stages of mourning as a way to classify the different approaches.
