This evening (11/2/22), in our Wednesday night Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we attempted to land the plane ... and crash landed. We began by reviewing the translations and questions from last time, then made some little moves here and there, but did not manage to answer any of Adler's Four Questions, and did not end up with any sort of takeaway. I'm not the first student of Torah to write "tzarich iyun," and it looks like that's where we'll have to leave it for now. May Hashem "uncover our eyes and let us see wonders from His Torah" (cf. Tehilim 119:18).

This week's Torah content has been sponsored by my friend and colleague, Rabbi Dr. Elie Feder. Rabbi Feder recently published a book called Gematria Refigured: A New Look at How the Torah Conveys Ideas Through Numbers (2022, Mosaica Press). The approach to gematria he presents in this book is neither fluffy nor fanciful, but rational. If you're interested in some sample chapters, click here. If you have a social media platform and are interested in promoting or reviewing Rabbi Feder's book, let me know and I'll put the two of you in touch. The book is available for purchase at https://mosaicapress.com/product/gematria-refigured/.
