Parshas Mishpatim – See the Symphony

 And these are the laws that you should set before them. (Shemos 21:1) Giant Tractates of the Talmud are generated from a few brief verses. Volumes of those discussions comprise the main diet of the Yeshiva student and most every devoted Torah learner. Why was so much...
