Vayehi binsoa ha-aron – “Whenever the ark was about to move on, Moses would say: O God, may your enemies be scattered …” (Num. 10:35). With these words many Jewish congregations open their Ark for taking out the Torah Scroll to be read. This week’s parashah, Re’eh (“See!”), contains some of the sharpest weapons to scatter spiritual “enemies”.

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