Shalach (Numbers 13-15)

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

Join Mark Call for two related, but different looks at this week’s Torah portion, Shalach, from Numbers chapters 13 through 15.¬† From what is arguably histories “first recorded¬† vote” (which says much about the consequences when man decides that “democracy can out-vote YHVH”) to tzitzit, there’s a lot to consider in this parsha.

The first recording is the regular Erev Shabbat teaching, from the Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship, and is again an overview of the entire parsha:

The longer teaching from Shabbat concentrates on some specifics from the parsha, in more detail, and with, as usual, topical references relevant to current events.¬† In particular, this time, Mark takes a look at the two men who were “out-voted,” their leadership styles, and what they have to teach us as we face similar threats today.
