MIshpatim (Audio Portion)
It is perhaps the most comprehensive collection of commands ever assembled for a single Torah portion. Mishpatim has a near encyclopedic reach of concerns, from knowing when to use deadly force to an intruder, to rules for proper agriculture and from the world’s first known worker’s compensation system to proper management of servants, Mishpatim seems to cover pretty much every major aspect of life from that time. And yet, embedded in this amazing body of laws, protections and regulations a stunning vision of the heavenly throne awaits with an especially powerful message. What will Moshe see this week that literally no one else before him ever did? Find out from the only account of the event that has survived: his own.
