Ki Tetse – כי־תצא

September 10, 2022
Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19; Isaiah 54:1-10; 1 Timothy 5:17-18

Torah Portion “‘כי־תצא/Ki Tetse” which means “When You Go Out” and begins, “10 When you go out to war against your enemies, and Adonai your God hands them over to you, and you take prisoners…”

The possibility of change only comes with challenges. Judaism believes in the possibility of change — that children can become dramatically different from their parents. If Torah is to be preserved, it must be chosen by subsequent generations. Are you willing to change? You will not improve without changes. “The ultimate goal of our faith is to effectuate the kind of change in our enemies to turn them into friends — transform their curses into blessings.” Why do we eat so much dairy on Shavuot? Why is the foreign man rejected but the foreign woman accepted? Are you a “true child” of Abraham, displaying his characteristics? Justice and mercy must be acted on together. One without the other is neither justice nor mercy.

This week our Haftorah teaching is delivered by Brother Mark out of Isaiah 54:1-10, and the New Covenant teaching is delivered by Ro’eh Richard from 1 Timothy 5:17-18.
