Bamidbar 5784: Embracing the Wilderness

Posted by Pardes Faculty on June 3, 2024
Topics: Tanakh, Pardes from Jerusalem, Bamidbar, Torah, Bamidbar (Numbers)

How does the Jewish people’s journey through the desert shape our approach to Torah?

In this week’s episode, Rabbi Leon Morris and Rabbi Tzvi Hirschfield explore the theme of openness in Torah study, using the wilderness in the Midbar as a metaphor for the mindset required. Drawing from the Midrash and personal experiences, they explore the concept of being “hefker” or ownerless, and allowing Torah to guide us without preconceived notions.
