Aleph Beta on Parshas Shoftim: The Significance of Saving Private Ryan
In this week’s Torah portion we learn about four types of people who are exempt from going to battle. What makes these people so unique? Why is their individual safety more important than the communal need? How can we as a nation reconcile individuality and community?
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.
