Collecting Chance Encounters

Once I learned to treat every person I meet as more than chance and as an opportunity, I was able to expand my collection of superheroes.

Polygamy

The Torah explicitly says that a husband may divorce his wife if he so pleases. How can Rabbenu Gershom forbid this practice when the Torah seemingly permits it?

The Parsha Experiment – Ki Teitzei

Though related to the 10 commandments, what is the larger message that this list of laws in parsha Ki Teitzei is coming to teach us?

The Limits Of Love

The opening three laws of this parsha- a captive woman taken in war, the law about the rights of the firstborn, and the “stubborn and rebellious son” – are all about dysfunctions within the family.

The Parsha Experiment – Shoftim: Is This Just A Boring Parsha?

If the entire book of Deuteronomy is supposed to be Moshe's rousing speech before the nation enters Israel, how can we understand the mundane text of Parshat Shoftim?

Planting Next To A Shul

When I first encountered this explanation, I took issue with it. For even if a shul’s courtyard does not possess kedushah, planting in it could still be prohibited.
