Parshat Bamidbar (Numbers 1)
Join Geoffrey Stern and Rabbi Adam Mintz on Clubhouse Friday May 14th at 4:00pm (ET). Was Ben Gurion’s vision of a People’s Army which united the country and created a melting pot for Israeli Society foreshadowed in the Bible’s universal compulsory military service? What about the exception of the Tribe of Levi? Does the elimination from military service and dispercement of a militant and ideologically pure Priestly cast have lessons for us today? And what would the Torah have to say of the Haredi draft exemption? Finally, what do modern-day Israeli commanders have to say about peace?
