Behar – בהר

May 21, 2022
Leviticus 25:1-26:2; Jeremiah 32:6-27; Luke 4:16-21

Torah Portion “בהר/Behar” which means “In the Mountain,” and begins, “And יהוה spoke to Mosheh on Mount Sinai, saying,”

Ro’eh’s teaching this week from the portion covers the Shmitah and Yovel (Jubilee) Years. How do we obey the commandments to keep these years as shabbats? Are they a burden or liberty? Every week, we observe the weekly Shabbat – but what is the daily rest? How does the Shabbat help us to reduce anxiety and depression? Why didn’t Israel observe these commandments after coming into the land? What happens when we fail to observe the Shmitah and the Yovel? Who is responsible for telling us when they are? Does it apply to our gardens? What are the laws of Redemption? Ro’eh Richard brings answers to all of these questions and more, while also addressing an important mussar (character): Bitachon (persistent trust in Hashem).

This week our Haftorah teaching is delivered by Brother Mark from Jeremiah 32:6-27, and the New Covenant E-drash is delivered by Ro’eh Richard from Luke 4:16-21.
