Ki Tetze: Searching for Meaning in Mitzvot

Posted by Meir Schweiger on September 13, 2016
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Ki Tetze

Parshat Ki Tetze contains 74 mitzvot, but one, in particular, the “bird’s nest,” becomes the trigger for a fascinating discussion as to the validity and legitimacy of exploring the meaning of the mitzvot. In this week’s Pardes from Jerusalem podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger enters into that discussion and examines its relevance for today.
