parshat re’eh – deuteronomy 11 – 16
Join Geoffrey Stern and Rabbi Adam Mintz recorded on Clubhouse. Only Deuteronomy stipulates (20+ times) centralized worship in what ultimately became a capital in Jerusalem. The Samaritans accept this approach but substitute Mt. Gerizim for Jerusalem. The Essenes reject Jerusalem and its corrupt priests and power brokers for a new spiritual Jerusalem in the desert and the Rabbis ….. choose Yavneh and it’s scholars… and we discuss.

Welcome to Madlik. My name is Geoffrey Stern and at Madlik we light a spark or shed some light on a Jewish Text or Tradition. Along with Rabbi Adam Mintz we host Madlik Disruptive Torah on clubhouse every Thursday and share it as the Madlik podcast on your favorite platform. This week’s parsha is Re’eh. Deuteronomy, and only Deuteronomy stipulates … over 20 times, centralized worship in what ultimately became Jerusalem. The Samaritans accepted this centralized approach but substitute Mt. Gerizim for Jerusalem. The Essenes rejected Jerusalem and its corrupt priests and power-brokers and moved to the desert to achieve spiritual purity. Finally the Rabbis ….. chose Yavneh and it’s scholars… So join us as we declare: Next Year in Yavneh.
