Rabbi modestly stated that Achan was "severely punished"
And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.

And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.

Rabbi modestly stated "the Jews quickly took over the city"
And they utterly destroyed all that [was] in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.

Meturgaman
A Meturgaman was a man who would repeat the words of the sage loudly so it could be heard by the audience. This was a system that lasted for many centuries.

Martugamam?
At about 7 minutes into the discussion, Rabbi Dubov discusses a helper, (town cryer, vocal spokesman) to Joshuah to repeat Joshuah's instructions. How do you spell the word for this spokesperson? Martugamam?

This is such a wonderful blessing, and so much needed! It helps me to understand the application of the Torah in a way that translates law to action. I am looking forward to the next teaching. I love this!!
