Student Teaching in the New Millenium

5771 B’har I

In Leviticus on May 8, 2011 at 10:49 pm

Does the Torah ask “why must we observe the Sabbath year? Why can’t we use the land as we please?”

Does the Prophet answer “because nothing is too much for God?”

Does the Torah ask “why must we observe the holdings? Why can’t we do what we please with the land we bought and paid for?”

Does the Prophet answer “because God shows mercy unto thousands, and recompenses the iniquity of the fathers unto the children. You do this not on your own behalf, but on His?”

Does the Torah ask “what land are you talking about? We’re still in wilderness!”

Does the Torah ask “why should we worry about such things when we are constantly under threat?”

Does the Prophet answer “the Gates of Repentance are never closed? Is anything too wondrous for Me?”

If God visits the sins of the parents to the fourth and fifth generations, why does only one generation of the Israelites wander in the wilderness?
