Ekev: Learning to Listen

Posted by Nechama Goldman Barash on July 31, 2018
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem: Weekly Parsha Podcast, Ekev, Devarim (Deuteronomy)


The root Shema appears 92 times in the book of Devarim, suggesting an important theme-motif in Moshe’s last words to the nation before he dies. In this week’s parsha podcast on Ekev, Rabbanit Nechama Goldman Barash will look at some of the places in the beginning of Devarim and particularly in this week’s parsha in which the root word appears. In addition, she will also focus on an interesting midrashic text that deals with memory and mitzvot.
