Light to the Nations – with Rabbi Chaim Richman
Weekly series of short messages concerning the weekly Torah Portion.
“Listen, O heavens, and I will speak! And let the earth hear the words of my mouth!” (Deuteronomy 31:2) The word of G-d from Mount Sinai speaks to us constantly, day and night, calling upon us to repent. It is up to us to hear this voice. Man himself has a heavenly, spiritual side to whom G-d addresses: “Listen, O heavens, and I will speak!” And man has an earthly, physical side which can weigh him down, to which G-d speaks, “And let the earth hear the words of my mouth!” G-d loves both aspects of man. His voice can be heard, if we but choose to listen.
