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:
SSM – Shalach teaching
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.
