A Hebrew Slave
by Harav Yaakov Medan
"Now these are the judgments which you shall set before them. If you buy a Hebrew slave, six years he shall serve, and in the seventh he shall go out free, for nothing. If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself. If his master has given him a wife and she has born him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself." Who is this slave?
A Partial Achievement is Still an Achievement
by Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein
There is no utopia on earth before the coming of the Mashiach; our parasha teaches us that reality is imperfect, and how we can cope with this.
