Parsha Talk Re’eh 2021 -With Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Jeremy Kalmanofsky and Barry Chesler

Parashat Re’eh [Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17] is a special one in my family (BC)because it was the parashah when both my girls became Bat Mitzvah in the synagogue, 11 years apart. It is special in the book of Deuteronomy because it is the beginning of the core of the book, according to modern scholars, which extends into Parashat Ki Tavo, in another 3 weeks. One of the tropes of Deuteronomy is the centralization of worship, where our conversation begins. It ends somewhere down the road a piece. Shabbat Shalom!
