Parashat Re’eh: The Place that God Will Choose

Posted by Pardes Faculty on August 24, 2022
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Re'eh, Devarim (Deuteronomy)

In this week’s Pardes Parsha Podcast, Aviva Lauer joins Rabbi Michael Hattin to discuss parashat Re’eh.

As the people of Israel prepare for their entry into the land of Israel, Moses teaches them that God will choose the place for them to worship, that there will be one location in all of Israel where they will bring their sacrifices. Today, we know that place to be Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, but did the people of Israel, or Moses himself, know this? Could it be that the exact location had not been chosen yet?
