As an epilogue to this wonderful series, the Maggid of Melbourne shares the experience of Viduy Maaser – from the Pardes Beit Midrash to Zur Hadassa – a modest, but burgeoning community, nestled in the hills outside Jerusalem – and on to the Faculty of Law in Tel Aviv University. … The conclusion of this fascinating podcast series proudly brought to you by Pardes via the Elmad network.

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!
