Machshavah Lab
Sefer ha'Chinuch's Intro to Mikdash: Part 3 (Seir l'Azazel)
Show Notes

This evening (2/23/22), in our aptly named "Chumash Exploration," we continued learning the Sefer ha'Chinuch's introduction to Mikdash. After reviewing what we covered last time, we learned the Sefer ha'Chinuch's explanation of Seir l'Azazel, which we compared and contrasted with the Rambam's in the Moreh ha'Nevuchim, and with the Sefer ha'Chinuch's explanation of the Avodas Yom ha'Kippurim. Although there's more left in this mitzvah, we're most likely going to move on to something else next week. I encourage you to finish it on your own!
