In this week’s episode: Exodus 21-24.  We examine the first hardcore batch of laws in the Torah and discuss what might happen when two men brawl in public.  We also briefly discuss sheep-diddling and the nimble halakhic minds that can regard a life as not-a-life and a pursuer as not-a-pursuer.
And ICYMI, Rabbi Haym Soloveitchik’s piece entitled “Rupture and Reconstruction: The Transformation of Contemporary Orthodoxy” can be found here
