In this week’s podcast Rabbi Dr. Daniel Roth looks into Parshat Mishpatim. The rabbis read the words in Exodus 23:2 “acharey rabim lahatot” to mean “go after the majority”, but first know how to argue 49 ways one way and 49 ways the opposite way on each issue. This podcast discusses some of the key procedures from the ancient Sanhedrin put in place to ensure healthy disagreement based around the 49 vs 49 that can have important lessons for us today.
This podcast was recorded as part of The 9Adar Project: Jewish Week of Constructive Conflict. To see more on how you can get involved, see 9adar.org.
