Talking Torah Weekly!


Weekly commentary on the Torah portions with Jeff Gilbert.

 

Jeff Gilbert is…

not a rabbi,

not considered “Jewish” by the rabbinate and

not authorized by the rabbinate in any way to discuss the words of Torah.

But, I do it anyway.

 

Join us each week as we discuss the ideas surrounding the weekly divisions of the first five books of the “bible”. These discussions focus on helping those who are not associated, nor maybe even not want association with, any christian, or even rabbinic traditions.

 

We folk, who are standing between two camps…

on one side christianity, in all it’s shapes and traditions,

on the other side, Judaism, in all it’s shapes and traditions.

We folk have a voice, and we have a right to worship the God of Abraham in the way He details in His written words.

Talking Torah Live! Deuteronomy 30; The Lo Ammi and the Expectation of Restoration

Today, during our live presentation of our walk through Deuteronomy, we discuss Deuteronomy 30. During this presentation we discuss the expectations set within the Torah that, as per Deuteronomy 4 and 13, are mandated as fences for all subsequent prophets to follow. Is a “new” covenant allowed? What are some of the milestones that must occur in order for the restoration to be proclaimed. And did the second temple actually function as a valid, authoritative, place “where I shall place My name”.

Talking Torah Live! Passover part 2

Today we recorded the final portion of the 2 part Passover discussion that we did Live on the past Shabbat. Unfortunately that recording suffered a technical issue that cratered the recording. This recording is to replace that recording. Unfortunately, I feel that the recording that was lost was actually a better close to the discussion.
