Nitzavim: You Can Do It

Posted by Meir Schweiger on September 3, 2018
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Rosh Hashana, Nitzavim

In this week’s parsha, it says: “For this matter is very close to you–in your mouth and in your heart to do it.”  In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger examines a variety of readings of this verse to see how this verse, which not coincidentally is read every year before Rosh HaShana, has special meaning for our High Holiday experience.

Check out the latest online learning for the upcoming Holidays, including our Pardes Rosh Hashana Companion and a new podcast mini-series on Inspired Parenting. See
