אז ישיר ישראל את השירה הזאת

“Then Israel sang this song”

Jewish teachings are transmitted not only by chukkot, laws, or other instructions or stories but also by songs. Songs in the torah often interrupt the narrative to update the meaning for the listener or reader, as art in general is able to widen the horizon of experience.


The views expressed in this D’var Torah do not necessarily reflect the position of Leo Baeck College.
