R’eih

Curses? Mount Ebal
The blessings? Mount Gerizim
A strange ritual


Ibn Ezra says
Mount Ebal is a scapegoat
Absorbing curses



This week’s haiku were inspired by the commentary of Rabbi Oren J. Hayon in the URJ’s Reform Voices of Torah, part of the wonderful Ten Minutes of Torah email project.

  1. Interesting. So if Mt. Ebal absorbs, does Mt. Gerizim radiate or reflect?

  2. diet, prophesy
    distinguishing good from bad
    is the Jewish way

    a blessing and curse
    no false prophets or profits
    live a holy life

    in every moment
    remember and don’t forget
    holy consciousness
