Ki Tavo 5781 – Inscribe the Words Today

In this podcast, the manner in which Moses creates continuity between past, present and future as he prepares the nation for the time in which he will no longer be with them is explored. In addition, a focus on which words of Torah are inscribed on the 12 stones and where those stones are placed is looked at through the eyes of different commentaries. Finally, we will explore the usage of a rare verb that attests to the reciprocity in the relationship between God and Israel.
