Salvation Through Death – Breaking the Cycle

Parshat Chukat (Numbers 19)

Join Geoffrey Stern and Rabbi Adam Mintz on Clubhouse Friday June 18th at 4:00pm (ET). The Red Heifer purifies the defiled and defiles the pure and is universally taken as a commandment that defies reason and logic. According to science, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction so where’s the illogic? Even according to Rabbinic scholars such as Saadia Gaon and modern scholars such as Jacob Milgrom there is nothing unreasonable about this enigma. So why is the ḥoq of the Red Heifer so troubling. Why does it keep God up at night?

Parshat Korach (Numbers 16)

Join Geoffrey Stern and Rabbi Adam Mintz on Clubhouse Friday June 11th at 4:00pm (ET). A “Talit that is wholly blue” (טלית שכולה תכלת); arguably the first fashion statement, has entered popular Jewish and Israeli folklore and culture. We use this popular account of the Korach rebellion to continue our exploration of the Bible’s rejection of class privilege, pride, entitlement, and the corruption that they invite and a democratized vision for Judaism and Israel.

Parshat Beha’alotcha (Numbers 9: 2-13)

Join Geoffrey Stern and Rabbi Adam Mintz on Clubhouse Friday May 28th at 4:00pm (ET). We theorize regarding the relationship between the Biblical Pesach Sheni (2nd Passover) and the later instituted Ibur Shana (Leap year). We hypothesize regarding the theological and social ramifications of correcting an irregular and seemingly imperfect planetary system.
