Where is “the place which God shall choose”?

by Rav Yoel Bin Nun

Parashat Re'eh speaks repeatedly of the importance of worshiping in "the place which God shall choose," an idea usually associated with Jerusalem. As we shall see, this term is in fact far broader, allowing for different sites throughout the period of conquest and the Judges, until the beginning of the monarchy. In particular, we will examine the connection between courts of justice and sacrificial worship, in light of modern archeological evidence.

"Shall I Weap in the Fifth Month?"

by Harav Joseph B. Soloveitchik

The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Yehuda joy and gladness, and cheerful seasons. (Zekharya 8:19) And when will this happen? Only when, as the verse continues, "you will love truth and peace" – in the days of the Messiah.

RAL ByHisLight Character and Values in the Service of God new313x200

 BACK IN PRINT!!

In this volume, Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein explores the development of the religious personality. He advocates a life centered on the service of God, but recognizes multiple paths to this goal. Acknowledging that both the Jewish value system and human experience are multifaceted, he examines the relevant issues from an unusually wide perspective.

Rabbi Lichtenstein’s essays reflect not only a staunch commitment to Halakha and a firm grounding in rigorous Torah study, but also a deep spirituality, a profound moral sensitivity, and a keen awareness of both the challenges and opportunities of modernity. While being enlightened by Rabbi Lichtenstein’s penetrating analyses and wide-ranging learning, the reader will also be inspired by the beauty of his vision of the religious life.

What's Happening in Israel


Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."
