Haftarah Plethora Miketz
The boys welcome special guest Rabbi Cantor Hillary Chorny. After straightening out titles they discuss one of the most famous stories in the entire Bible. The trio agree that the story shows that compassion is an essential part of wisdom while Rabbi Chorny explains that there are more than 20 different systems of Torah trope. Larry challenges Rick to learn them all.
The Mishnah Study Group will be gathering to learn on December 19th with Zwi Reznik.
