Marrying G-d
Letters and Numbers of Torah - Mishpatim
The Torah describes the unfortunate situation (Exodus 21:8) of a destitute man who sells his daughter as an indentured servant. The word "lo" in this verse is written lamed-aleph meaning that the man for whom the girl works "did not betroth her as a wife" but it is read as if it were spelled lamed-vav meaning the man for whom the girl works "should have betrothed her as a wife." On a spiritual level, the verse can describe two kinds of relationships that we have with G-d.
Parshat Mishpatim
How does a convert finish the conversion process? In the times when the Holy Temple stood, it was necessary to bring a sacrificial offering. What do we do now, after the Temple was destroyed? We look closely at the opinion of Maimonides that a convert requires “circumcision, immersion in a mikvah, and when the Temple will be rebuilt, the bringing of an offering.” (Based on Likkutei Sichot, vol. 26, p. 160.)

The Prohibition of Milk and Meat
In middle of the many logical mitzvahs – most dealing with civil law – that are enumerated in the parshah of Mishpatim, the Torah mentions the super-rational prohibition of cooking milk and meat (Genesis.23:19); what’s the significance?

The Servant
Parsha Mishpatim
The very first law the Torah records after the account of the giving of the Torah is the law of the Jewish bondsman. This is most puzzling for a number of reasons including the fact that the Torah discourages the ‘acquisition’ of servants, and in fact historically it was an unusual occurrence. Why then would this subject be the Torah’s first choice? This talk offers a compelling answer, relevant to all. (Likutei Sichos vol.16)
