This week Rabbi Prof. David Golinkin, President of the Schechter Institutes, zooms out and examines Exodus chapter six and the language of redemption. Instead of focusing on the immediacy of the plagues we must look towards Israel’s redemption by God. How do we claim our dual inheritance, that of the Torah and of the Land of Israel?
David Golinkin is President of The Schechter Institutes, Inc. and President Emeritus of the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies. For twenty years he served as Chair of the Va’ad Halakhah (Law Committee) of the Rabbinical Assembly which gives halakhic guidance to the Masorti Movement in Israel. He is the founder and director of the Institute of Applied Halakhah at Schechter and also directs the Center for Women in Jewish Law.
