Parsha:
Masei Matot 

Description

The opening section of Matot deals with the laws of vows directly. But, through these laws, the Torah clearly articulates a perspective on women's roles in Jewish society. What happens when the Torah view directly clashes with modern society? How do we deal with this difficult struggle, especially with regard to such a controversial issue in today's Orthodox world?
