Questioning faith in the parsha
This year the Torah portion is being explored through the prism of modern American and Israeli Jewish literature. The key question to consider: How have 20th and 21st century Jewish writers created pathways back to the truths in our ancient Torah text.
Before learning what a modern author has to say, however, we need to hear the commentaries of the rabbis through the centuries. Each week’s Remez includes thoughts from some of them. More information about the sages quoted is on the Rabbis page.
For more about each author, please see the appropriate page under “Modern Authors.” Please note that we cannot post the entire story due to copyright laws, and so we are posting the first paragraph.
