In פרשת כי תצא, this week’s Torah reading, we come across a striking example of an unexpected textual relationship. In chapter 22, verse 7 the Torah states, “You must first send away the mother and then you may take the young, so that it will be good for you and your days (life) will be lengthened.” Earlier in ספר דברים chapter 5, verse 16 the Torah says, “Honor your father and your mother … so that your days be lengthened and so that it will be good for you…” By the proper performance of these two mitzvoth, the Torah assures us the reward of a long life. Is this identical reward just a coincidence or is there some important philosophic and ethical connection between them?
What a tremendous first day of our 44th year! We welcomed the class of 2031 to kindergarten, the class of 2025 to middle school, and the class of 2022 to Fischer High School. Click for a video.
