Ki Tetze 5783: It Starts From Below

Posted by Pardes Faculty on August 22, 2023
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Torah, Devarim (Deuteronomy), Ki Tetze

In this week’s episode, Zvi is joined by Yiscah Smith for a discussion of the mitzvah of “sending away the mother bird,” and how the Talmudic rejection of finding reasons for the commandment became an invitation for Hasidic thinkers to explore even deeper. While we started with this example, our conversation broadened out to a wider on the topic of finding the balance between external authority and structure, and internal coherence and connection.
