There are two accounts of the ten commandments – one, in our parsha, which is happening in “real” time. The other account appears in Deuteronomy, when Moshe re-tells the momentous events of Sinai to the new generation that has grown up in the desert and is about to enter the Land. Although the accounts are essentially identical, there are some conspicuous differences between the two versions of the shabbat commandment. In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger explores those differences and explains them. Hopefully this will lead to a deeper understanding of the shabbat experience.
Thank you to Dr. Phillip Ross for sponsoring this podcast in honor of his teacher, Rav Meir Schweiger.
