Devarim: Moshe Rabbeinu – The Educator Par Excellence

Posted by Meir Schweiger on August 9, 2016
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Devarim, Tisha B'av

Mishneh Torah is the term used by the rabbis to describe the last book of the Torah. What does this term mean and does it truly describe this book which, in essence, is Moshe’s parting words to the Jewish people? In answering these questions, Rabbi Meir Schweiger will explore Moshe’s legacy to a nation poised to enter the Land of Israel, but which is just as relevant today.
