Whether or not you are fortunate to be physically present in our Beit Midrash this summer, join us for a Shot of Summer Torah. The Maggid of Melbourne, Levi Cooper, will take you on a quest to discover two forgotten mitzvot: Biyur Maasrot – ensuring that all tithes have been distributed (Deuteronomy 14:28-29), and Viduy Maaser – the celebratory declaration that this has been done (Deuteronomy 26:12-15). From the Bible, on to the Rabbis, and right through to today. There is only one more thing to say: TO THE BEIT MIDRASH!
