In another collection of incisive essays on the weekly Torah reading and Jewish holidays, Rabbi Ari Kahn once again displays his remarkable ability to distill complicated philosophical, theological, and exegetical ideas into brief and accessible language for everyone at the Shabbat table.

Share these ideas at your Shabbat table, or study them beforehand to enhance your understanding of the parashah each week.
