Tetzaveh 5777

March 7, 2017

This is Torah Talk for the week of March 5th, 2017

Exod 28:29 Aaron shall carry the names of the sons of Israel on the breastpiece of decision over his heart, when he enters the sanctuary, for remembrance before the Lord at all times. 30 Inside the breastpiece of decision you shall place the Urim and Thummim, so that they are over Aaron’s heart when he comes before the Lord. Thus Aaron shall carry the instrument of decision for the Israelites over his heart before the Lord at all times.

But just what are the Urim and Thummim?  Victor Hurowitz (ז״ל) had some ideas.
