Parsha Talk Shabbat Shuva 2020

The parashah is Ha’azinu, Deuteronomy 32. This Shabbat is also known as Shabbat Shuvah, the Shabbat of Return, after the 1st word of the haftarah, Hosea 14:2. The close connection between the word shuvah and t’shuvah [commonly translated as repentance] has been explored in biblical interpretation and Jewish theology for hundreds of years!
We discuss some verses from the weekly Torah reading, some verses from the haftarah [Hosea 14:2-10, Micah 7:18-20, Joel 2:15-27] talk about Moses near the end of his life, and touch upon some other issues, all in a half an hour or so!
With best wishes from Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Jeremy Kalmonnofsky, Barry Chesler and the staff at Radio Kol Ramah we wish you Shabbat Shalom and G’mar Chatimah Tovah, a good seal in the Book of Life on Yom Kippur!
