Posted by Mike Feuer on July 18, 2017
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Matot, Massei

Rabbi Mike Feuer in this week’s parsha podcast discusses how the laws of vows in Matot-Masei show us that words can bind even God, and have the power to create new realities. But what are the consequences for national unity when these new realities prove false?
