Machshavah Lab
Shoftim: The Parameters of Idolatrous Cultural Appropriation
Show Notes

Synopsis: This is the audio version of the 1-page article I wrote entitled, Shoftim: The Parameters of Idolatrous Cultural Appropriation, in which we attempt to explain a contradiction between the Rambam's theory of korbanos and his explanation for why we are prohibited from planting trees on the Temple Mount.
