Behar - 60 second video sermon

"Proclaim liberty in the land"

says this week's parasha, Behar.





We need liberty and release more than ever in this hurting world. I'm grateful that the Torah holds up a near Utopian vision of release every seven years from our human vices of overworking the land and exploiting each other.


But capturing humans, to my mind, is the lowest of crimes. The commentators allude to human freedom in this parasha - Rabbi Yehuda in the Gemara speaks of the linguistic similarity between "dror" (liberty) and "dor" (dwelling) and in this video I share a heartbreaking idea from the Ibn Ezra.
