Parashat Shabbat Behar-Bechukotai

The Sabbatical Year makes Eretz Yisrael to His Land HaAretz

Leviticus 25:1 – 27:34; Jeremia 16:19 – 17:14

Video Commentary by Rabbi Chaim Richman, The Temple Institute, Jerusalem:

While in recent years the weight of the commentary by Rabbi Richman hab been laid on the first Parasha „Behar“…

    „G-d commands the children of Israel to observe the sabbatical year by letting the land of Israel rest. This act of sanctifying the land by placing our total faith in G-d, grants us the peace we so fervently desire.“

…his current commentary is focussing the second Parasha „Bechukotai“:

„Wanted: Dead or alive! There is no doubt that G-d loves and wants His people Israel. Either we are alive to His presence, and worthy of the blessings listed in Behar-Bechukotai, or we are dead to His presence, and thus deserving of the horrific admonitions enumerated in Behar-Bechukotai. The choice is ours!“

Shabbat Shalom!
