Parshat Mishpatim

In this week’s parsha, we are given the laws of female servitude – worse, a female child, being sold by her parents! How are we, as 21st century students of the Torah, meant to understand such a difficult piece of text? In this video, Rabbi Fohrman shows us that the Torah argues that to create a better society, we must be proactive about addressing social and economic inequality.


This video is from Rabbi David Fohrman.
