About this Class
The wide range of mitzvot found in Parshat Mishpatim includes an admonition to treat foreigners preferentially, for “you yourself were foreigners in Egypt.” But why should personal refugee history be the reason to treat a stranger appropriately? Shouldn’t the right thing be done regardless of past experiences? Join us for this profound and timely teaching that seeks to solve a biblical mystery while introducing inspiring secrets about righteous converts, and the ancient sacred souls they successfully lay claim to.
