Tazria-Metzora: On Rituals and Values

Posted by Meir Schweiger on April 25, 2017
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Tazria, Metzora

This week’s double portion, Tazria-Metzora, is one of the most difficult sections of the Torah for a modern reader to engage. It discusses rituals and situations that are foreign to our reality. So why study them? Is there any way of making them relevant? In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger discusses how these very important questions force us to examine what Jewish education is all about.
