Aleph Beta on Parshas Reeh: Why Do We Need Both Oral and Written Law?
Why do the laws from the rabbis end up looking so different than Biblical laws? And even more so – what does law have to do with God and spirituality? What is the point of the legalism inherent in our religion? In this video, Rabbi Fohrman argues that thought without action can wither away, and that law is about finding spirituality in the mundane.
