Shoftim in a Nutshell

Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9

Moses instructs the people of Israel to appoint judges and law enforcement officers in every city. “Justice, justice shall you pursue,” he commands them, and you must administer it without corruption or favoritism. Crimes must be meticulously investigated and evidence thoroughly examined—a minimum of two credible witnesses is required for conviction and punishment.

In every generation, says Moses, there will be those entrusted with the task of interpreting and applying the laws of the Torah. “According to the law that they will teach you, and the judgment they will instruct you, you shall do; you shall not turn away from the thing that they say to you, to the right nor to the left.”

Shoftim also includes the prohibitions against idolatry and sorcery; laws governing the appointment and behavior of a king; and guidelines for the creation of “cities of refuge” for the inadvertent murderer. Also set forth are many of the rules of war: the exemption from battle for one who has just built a home, planted a vineyard, married, or is “afraid and soft-hearted”; the requirement to offer terms of peace before attacking a city; and the prohibition against wanton destruction of something of value, exemplified by the law that forbids to cut down a fruit tree when laying siege (in this context the Torah makes the famous statement, “For man is a tree of the field”).

The Parshah concludes with the law of the eglah arufah—the special procedure to be followed when a person is killed by an unknown murderer and his body is found in a field—which underscores the responsibility of the community and its leaders not only for what they do, but also for what they might have prevented from being done

 

 

 

 

The Sofer (Scribe) is Coming to our shul!

Chitat 10:00am

Rabbi Tzvi Karro the Sofer  11:00am

 

Rabbi Tzvi Karro ,a sofer over 25 years will be visiting our shul to check Tefilin , Mezuzot and our Torah scrolls

 The Sofer enables Jews to fulfill three special mitzvoth which bring us closer to God by writing Torahs, Tefillin and Mezuzoth. Since the month of Elul and the high holidays are approaching a time for putting our "spiritual house" in order, many have their Mezuzoth inspected by a Sofer during this time.

Please joinus, bring your Mezuzot  and Tefilin to check and repair,Rabbi Karro will have Mezuzot and Tefilin on hand in case you need to purchase,

Rabbi Karro will be happy to answer any questions you may have,

Prayer for Israeli Soldiers

Invoking God's protection for the members of the Israel Defense Forces

 

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob -- may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our God, from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighters from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under our soldiers’ sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is the Lord your God, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.
