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.

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.
