Torah Portion Chukat
Numbers 19:1 – 22:1
Shalom! This week we discuss the story of how Jepthah had acquired honor but ascribed shame because of being the son of a prostitute as well as whether or not Jepthah actually sacrificed his daughter. This year we will be spending approximately one hour on each of the Haftarah portions and investigating them from their historical setting and their ancient Near Eastern context as well as making connections back to the Torah Portion. I pray that you will enjoy these teachings!
