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: Ki-Tissa and Vayelekh

Today we backtrack a little and spend most of our time in Ki-Tissa, I know it is a week late, but next week we will spend far more time with Vayelekh and Pekude since they are very closely related.

 

On this recording we spend most of the time discussing Idolatry. We do name names on this recording. However,  steps were taken to minimize hurt feelings. I pray that you find this discussion, helpful.

Talking Torah Weekly: Yitro

Today we discuss Yitro. I took a new path this year in discussing this parasha and have spent a lot of time talking about this guy Yitro… Who is he, where is he from, when did he come to know about YHVH and why did he offer thanksgiving offerings with Moses and Aharon? Stay tuned to hear more. 🙂
