Ekev: Between Awe and Fear

Posted by Mike Feuer on August 22, 2016
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Ekev, Devarim (Deuteronomy)

Despite the hundreds of commandments we have heard up to now, this week Moshe tells us that all God wants is our yirah. In order to know whether he means awe and fear, we explore the roots of the word in the Biblical text, and the role it plays in human experience.
