Slavery in Judaism

When We Make a Beracha on Food, We Don't Redefine the Food; We Redefine Ourselves

Class Summary:

In the midst of a Gemarah class, Rabbi YY Jacobson explores the Torah's view on slavery, both when you obtain a Jewish and non-Jewish slave, and a deeper understanding of why we make blessings before we eat and drink.
This discussion took place on Friday Parshas Matos-Masei, 1 Av, 5779, August 2, 2019, at the Ohr Chaim Shul, Monsey, NY.
