Aleph Beta on Parshas Ki Savo: The Pursuit of Happiness - Part 1

Aleph Beta on Parshas Ki Savo: The Pursuit of Happiness – Part 1

Share:

 

This week’s parsha can be broken into two main sections. The first section is about the declarations a farmer needs to make after he brings Bikkurim, the first fruit, and tithes to the Temple. The second section is all about the blessings and curses that will befall the nation of Israel depending on whether they keep their covenant with God. How do these sections fit together? Is there a common thread that unifies our parsha? Join us in this two week series, spanning Ki Tavo and Nitzavim, where Rabbi Fohrman will address the greater theme of the pursuit of happiness.

This video was produced by Aleph Beta, which seeks to help people get to the heart of what Torah is all about. Through a willingness to question and take a deeper look at our sources, Aleph Beta helps people find their place in a story that has been told for thousands of years. Bringing new methods to a very old tradition, we’ve attempted to make each video surprising and exciting.
