Thursday, May 29th, 2014

In this week’s parsha, Rabbi Fohrman reminds us about a short section we’ve heard many times, but intriguingly, suggests that the Torah may be suggesting something different than we have ever expected, that actually, the way we ask God to treat us may also be the way we ourselves should treat our children.
