TSJ Interlude: Removing the Evil of the Decree

September 14, 2021 Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss Season 5 Episode 35
The Stoic Jew
TSJ Interlude: Removing the Evil of the Decree
Show Notes

Synopsis: In this episode I share an insight I had on Rosh ha’Shanah into the famous statement “teshuvah, tefilah, and tzedakah remove the evil decree” – or should I say, “the evil OF the decree.” I share a real-world example of this which transpired on the second day of Rosh ha’Shanah this year.
