The Power Parsha with Rabbi Lerer Join Rabbi Lerer on Zoom each week at 8pm as we look at the week’s Torah portion in a totally new light….
Rabbi Marcus MBE – Shoftim
The name ‘Shoftim’ – meaning judges is taken from the opening word of this week’s Sidra. As our ancestors were about to enter the land of Israel, Moshe instructed them to establish a system of courts and judges so that justice would prevail in the land. The obvious prohibition of bribery is stressed so that justice would be administered fairly and honestly.
