5779 — Re’eh: Balancing the Ideal and the Real

Posted by Leon Morris on August 28, 2019
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Torah, Re'eh, Devarim (Deuteronomy)

How do we shape a prospective on life that allows us to keep faith with our dreams and aspirations, and at the same time to recognize the world as it is, and respond to that reality in ways that are helpful, productive and relevant? Living with the tension is perhaps the most fruitful way of relating to poverty, communal responsibility and the places we call home.
