Torah Talk for Parashat Devarim

July 17, 2018

In this parasha, Moshe recounts to the Bnei Yisrael episodes from the 40 years in the wilderness; he gives the Bnei Yisrael encouragement regarding their upcoming conquest of the land of Cana’an. The Torah is not a history book. Although it does contain much of the early history of the Jewish people, if it were […]


Torah Talk for Parashot Matot-Masei

In Parashat Matot, Moshe describes the laws of oaths; the Bnei Yisrael battle the Midianites; and the tribes of Reuven and Gad request to dwell outside of the Land of Israel. In Parashat Masei, the final parasha of the book of Bemidbar (Numbers), the Bnei Yisrael stand on the banks of the Jordan River, ready […]


Torah Talk for Parashat Pinchas

July 3, 2018

In this parasha, Hashem gives Pinchas, the grandson of Aharon, a covenant of peace; Hashem explains to Moshe the distribution of the Land of Israel to male heirs in their respective tribes; the daughters of Tzelophchad successfully petition to inherit their father’s portion; and Moshe appoints Yehoshua (Joshua) as his successor. The parasha opens with […]


Torah Talk for Parashat Balak

In this parasha, Balak, the king of Moav, asks Bil’am to curse the Bnei Yisrael after he sees them defeat various nations in battle.

What a difference a year makes!

Torah Talk for Parashat Chukat

June 20, 2018

In this parasha, Hashem instructs Moshe and Aaron regarding the parah adumah (red heifer); Miriam dies; to bring forth water, Moshe hits a rock rather than speaking to it; Aharon dies. An odd verse appears in chapter 21, as the Torah is recounting the places that the Bnei Yisrael encamped until they had water. Says […]

Pre-Kindergarten students created a vibrant, large-scale mural which they donated to Children’s National Medical Center.

The whole school celebrated Mitzvah Day yesterday (6/13, in honor of the 613 mitzvot listed in the Torah).

Torah Talk for Parashat Korach

June 12, 2018

This week’s parasha is about the rebellion of Korach and his men against Moshe and Aharon, whom they felt should not be the heads of the Jewish people. The rebellion failed miserably, and Korach and his men are “swallowed by the earth” in an earthquake. Hashem then instructs Aharon regarding laws of the priesthood. The […]
