Machshavah Lab
A Fresh Look at the Shalosh Regalim: Mishpatim and Ki Sisa (Part 2)
Show Notes

Length: 56 minutes
Synopsis: This evening (5/4/22), in our aptly named "Chumash Exploration," we continued our analysis of the Torah's initial presentation of the shalosh regalim to Klal Yisrael. After attempting to infer whatever we could on our own, we enlisted the Ibn Ezra, the Ralbag, and the Abravanel for guidance - and they delivered! Although we didn't explain EVERYTHING, we at least came up with a working theory about the foundational themes of the shalosh regalim. We ended off with a "homework question." If you have answers, I'd love to hear them! Next week we will most likely move on to a new topic.
