Parashat HaShavua - Be'har
Wednesday, May 25, 2016
Towards the beginning of this week's parsha, we read about the Sabbatical year and the Jubilee year. We are taught that at the arrival of the Jubilee year, we are to sound the Shofar (on the 10th of the 7th month). The sound of this Shofar is interwoven with the word Dror­ - translated as freedom. Reflecting on a verse from Jeremiah that also uses the word Dror, Martin Buber reminds us that those who expect freedom for themselves but do not grant freedom to others are punished by God. In other words, Buber urges us to remember that Freedom is not something we demand for ourselves, it is a right we secure for others.
