 Torah Portion – Ha’azinu (D’varim 32:1 – 32:52) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:04:47

Shalom. Here is our commentary on the parsha Ha'azinu or "listen." This portion is the song of Moses given to Israel just before his death. In it we learn the faithfulness of God in the face of Israel's unfaithfulness and ingratitude. Yet, we also learn that, in the end of days, the Creator will demonstrate to Israel that He alone is able to deliver them and will do it for the sake of His great Name. Hope you enjoy.

 Torah Portion – Vay’yelech (D’varim 31:1 – 30) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 34:38

Shalom. This is our audio commentary on the portion Vay'yelech - "and he went." On the last day of his life, Moses went through the camp to encourage the people that the Creator would continue to guide them even though he, Moses, would no longer be with them. Yet, he also warned them that, in the future, their disobedience would cause God to "hide" His face from them and it wouldn't be until the end of days that their descendants would turn back to God with their whole heart. There is much to be considered in this portion. Download PDF by copying and pasting this link into your browser: https://billcloud.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Vayyelech.pdf

 Torah Portion – Nitzavim (D’varim 29:10 – 30:20) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:00:20

Shalom! This is our audio commentary on the portion nitzavim - "standing." As Moses' life draws to a close, he reminds the people to beware of the idolatry they will encounter in the Land. This sidrah emphasizes the ramifications of having a "root of gall and wormwood" both to the individual and the nation. One verse in this portion also addresses the concept of things "concealed" and things "revealed" and how it relates to the redemption. Much more.

 Torah Portion – Ki Tavo (D’varim 26:1 – 29:9) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:25:32

Shalom! This is our commentary on the portion Ki tavo - "when you come (into the land)." In this torah portion, the most prominent feature is the "blessings and curses" presented to Israel as a result of obedience or disobedience. Yet, there are other pretty interesting components in this portion. One of them is a possible allusion to the coming anti-Messiah. Where, you say, is that found? You'll have to listen to the audio. Blessings and hoping you enjoy the teaching. Download PDF by copying and pasting this link into your browser: https://billcloud.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Ki-Tavo.pdf

 Torah Portion – Ki Tetze (D’varim 21:10 – 25:19) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:46:01

Shalom. Here is our audio commentary on the torah portion ki tetze - "when you go out." There are so many issues that are addressed in this portion that it would require an essay to summarize them for you here; I will simply highlight some of the major ones for you. --The "beloved wife" and the "hated wife" --The rebellious son --Prohibition against mingled seed --Divorce I hope you enjoy the teaching.

 Torah Portion – Shoftim (D’varim 16:18-21:9) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:02:18

Shalom. Here is the audio commentary on the portion, shoftim or "judges." The main emphasis of this portion is the status, qualifications and responsibilities of the officers and leaders of Israel: judges, the king, priests and the prophets. Of particular interest is Moses' prophecy of "a prophet like unto me." There was a lot to consider in this portion and hope this commentary will prompt you to dig some more. Enjoy!

 Torah Portion – Re’eh (D’varim 11:26 – 16:17) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 58:42

Shalom. This is the (lengthy) commentary on Re'eh - "to see." There was so much material in this portion - the Place where He sets His Name, false prophets and lying signs as well as the Year of Release - that I couldn't limit it to the typical 60 - 90 minute format. As you can "see" there are three parts. Nevertheless, I hope you will enjoy it and glean from it as much as I did.

 Torah Portion – Ekev (D’varim 7:12-11:25) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:32:42

Shalom. This is my commentary on the parsha Ekev or "reward." This focuses on the spiritual preparations for possessing the land. In this portion we learn that for Israel to do so meant they must resist the temptation of foreign gods as the well as the temptation that the fertile land and its bounty would present - the opportunity to forget God and His commands. Thus, Moses compels them to circumcise their hearts; to hear Him, to fear Him and love Him. This is a very "rich" parsha - I hope you enjoy.

 Torah Portion – V’et chanan (D’varim 3:23 – 7:11) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:38:45

Shalom everyone. This is our commentary on the portion called V'etchanan. This sidrah covers quite a few topics including the prohibition not to mingle with the inhabitants of the Land and Israel's creed to live by - the Sh'ma.

 Torah Portion – D’varim (D’varim 1:1 – 3:22) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:14:39

Shalom everyone. This is our commentary on the initial Torah portion of D'varim, called D'varim - "words." !In the portion, Moses encourages Israel to, not only listen to his words but, hear him. He exhorts them, as they prepare to enter the land, not to fear the obstacles, namely, the giants and the fortified cities. Enjoy!

 Torah Portion – Massei (B’midbar 33:1 – 36:13) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 58:30

Shalom everyone. This is our commentary on the concluding Torah portion of B’midbar, Massei – “journeys.” This portion gives an overview of Israel’s journeys through the wilderness, from the departure from Egypt until the encampment on the plains of Moav. Also included are instructions to Israel to drive out all the inhabitants of Canaan; the […]

 Torah Portion – Mattot (B’midbar 30:1 – 32:42) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 38:09

Shalom everyone. This is our commentary on the Torah portion, Mattot. As this portion begins, it focuses on the sacredness of vows. This principle becomes very important as the portion unfolds for the tribes of Reuben and Gad. We also see in the war against Midian that Israel must learn the importance of destroying that […]

 Torah Portion- Pinchas (B’midbar 25:10 – 29:40) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 58:29

Shalom everyone. This is our commentary on the Torah portion, Pinchas. The beginning of this sidrah continues the narrative of Pinchas’ actions as a result of the sin of Ba’al Peor. As a reward for his righteous zeal, he is promoted from Levitical status to that of priest. We also read of Moses’ impending death […]

 Torah Portion – Balak (B’midbar 22:2 – 25:9) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:35

This is our d’rash (commentary) on the torah portion, Balak.  In this portion we see that, despite his best efforts, the Adversary can’t curse what the Father has blessed. However, we also learn that, when we let our guard down, he seduces us into behavior that will do to us what he doesn’t have the authority […]

 Torah Portion Chukat (B’midbar 19:1 – 22:1) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:26:50

This is our d’rash (commentary) on the torah portion, Chukat.  Who can render something pure from something that is impure? This is the prevailing theme in this Torah portion. In the ritual of the Red Heifer and again in the Brazen Serpent, we see this paradox. Ultimately, what we are supposed to see is the nature […]
