Ki Tetze 5781

August 17, 2021

This is Torah Talk for the week of August 15th, 2021

Deut. 25:5   When brothers dwell together and one of them dies and leaves no son, the wife of the deceased shall not be married to a stranger, outside the family. Her husband’s brother shall unite with her: he shall take her as his wife and perform the levir’s duty.

What exactly is a “levir’s” duty?  Someone in the book of Ruth (who shall remain nameless) is about to find out.
