Prisoners are People
Disc: 156 / Program: 624 | Talk
Event Date: 14 Adar II, 5736 • March 16, 1976
While the modern legal system has prisons at the core of its establishment, the Torah never features prison as a form of punishment, even as a deterrent. This, because the idea of locking someone up is antithetical to the nature of humanity. According to the Torah, a person was put on this earth for a purpose. Withholding one’s ability to achieve that purpose is the most inhumane treatment he can possibly suffer. ExpandMore

Engineering Light
Disc: 156 / Program: 623 | Talk
Event Date: 30 Av, 5742 • August 19, 1982
Windows are designed to be narrow on the inside and wide on the outside, to spread their light to a larger space. The windows in the Temple, however, were fitted the other way around, representing the fact that the function of the Temple’s windows were for precisely the opposite purpose. While regular windows are meant to bring light into a structure, the Temple’s windows were to bring light outside of them; sharing the light of Judaism with the rest of the world. We find a similar idea in Maimonides drawing of the Menorah, symbolizing the import of taking the light of the Menorah, the light of the Torah, and sharing it with the rest of the world. ExpandMore
