He says the idea of "plural" referring to the plurality of sounds, the word after word, the necessity of involvement to "get it" as opposed to the "singularity" of sight in the 1st paragraph...but the plural in paragraph two refers specifically to something completely other than what he is claiming somehow is "hidden" there. Just the fact that the 2nd person plural is used in the 2nd paragraph doesn't connect to what he is saying, yet he is claiming a connection.

I actually don't object to his idea with plural and singular but it's absurd to claim that this is something described or implied in the verse.

All due respect of course! Reply

Yom kippur Nice lecturer Reply

This class analyzes an aspect of the weekly Torah portion or upcoming holiday. While providing a basic understanding of the subject matter, the lesson delves into its deeper and more complex dimensions with emphasis on the spiritual relevance to our daily lives. Inspiration for both the novice and advanced student.
