Making modern meaning from ancient texts! Each week Rabbi Micah Streiffer discusses the weekly Torah portion in about 7 to 10 minutes, through liberal Jewish eyes. We weave together philosophy, spirituality, tradition, and social justice - and derive meaning for today‘s life from our sacred sources. Longer episodes include a bonus interview with leading rabbis and Jewish thought leaders.

The Torah's story of the scouts points to our ability to choose how we understand and respond to a given situation. In this episode I relate the parashah to Viktor Frankl's teaching of the "last of the human freedoms."
