Parsha Talk Ki Tetzei 2020

Parashat Ki Tetze [Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19] is known for its mitzvah density. 74 of the 613 commandments the rabbis located in the Torah [12%, for the mathematically inclined] are found in these few chapters. There are laws for all occasions. Give a listen as Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Jeremy Kalmonofky and Barry Chesler discuss some of them. Among those discussed are the ben sorer u-moreh (the stubborn and rebellious son) [21:18-21], levirate marriage [25:5-10], and the command to destroy Amalek [25:17-19]. Shabbat Shalom!
