Balak 5783: The View from the Inside

In what ways might we find deeper meaning to our parsha through an examination of the haftarah?

In this week’s podcast, Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield is joined by Rabbi Amirit Rosen to discuss one of the wildest stories of the Torah, containing a talking donkey and a wizard. Together, they expand the story through an analysis of the parsha’s haftarah, the prophecies of Micah, exploring how Micah’s message of comfort and challenge to the Jewish people could be considered both an interpretation and corrective to the blessings of Bilaam.
