Re’eh – Rest and Motion

What is the concept of ‘Atzeres’ – stopping from motion and melacha? What is the difference between Atzeres in the context of the number seven, versus the number eight? Why are the aspects of 50 and 8 left out of our parsha – no mention of Shavuos as the 50th day, and no mention of the holiday of Shmini Atzeres? What is the concept of the Shalosh Regalim – three festivals? Why are they referred to as ‘feet’ and ‘steps?’ What is the lesson of the motion of the feet insofar as it involves both rest and motion?

Find out in this week’s parsha podcast.
