Welcome to the Nishma Insight Discussion Forum blog.


The NISHMA INSIGHT is our popular dvar Torah, distributed almost every week by e-mail, that touches upon an important concept in the Parsha, theme in a holiday or event in contemporary society.

Often, readers respond, via e-mail, with comments that initiate a further dialogue. Through this Discussion Forum, we now wish to open this dialogue to others. If you have a comment on the INSIGHT, we invite you place to your comments here; then we invite everyone to join the discussion.

(If you are not receiving the NISHMA INSIGHT, we invite you join our mailing/e-mail list through completing our sign-up form available at our website.)

Insight 5775-34: Truth and Slander

For Shelach
Not yet available on the Nishma website.

Study Question

1) This question is already implied in the Insight itself but we may wonder about the distinctions in thought that exist between the variant presentations. Do the three see the sin of the meraglim differently and how do they then understand the nature of this sin? I, though, still think that, despite their differences in presentation, they may all still see the nature f the sin similarly.
