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 Weekly: Balakh

Today we try to build up the name of Bila’am.  His epiphany with God and his transition from a high priced enchanter to a man with his eyes made fully open. Most of this program we spend discussing the four songs of Bila’am. One for now, one for tomorrow, and two for the last day. We hope that you enjoy this program.

Talking Torah Weekly: Bechukkotai

Today we discuss the big pep talk that Moses gives to Israel as they prepare to leave for Kedesh Barnea and subsequently into the Land. What are these final words? Make no images of God and do not bow to them. Well, in Jeremiah, we find that Israel didn’t get that commandment corrected.
