Parashat Chukat: Moses. The Hand and the Word

Description: In our parsha we read the episode of “Moses’ Sin” in which Moses hits the rock instead of speaking to it. In this podcast, Pardes faculty Alex Israel and Gila Fine discuss the tension in Moses’ life between his hands, the role of action, and his mouth, the realm of speech. The discussion moves to the perils of social media and the precision of language in the Talmud.

Note: Israel is currently ahead in its reading of the weekly parsha. If you are outside of Israel and would like to learn along with your synagogue’s reading, please visit last week’s podcast.
