You Are What You Worship (Episode 26)

Psalms 115:8 is most commonly translated as a prayer asking G-d to make idolaters like their idols. But Rabbi Pesach Wolicki’s unique (and exact) translation – “Like them shall be those who make them; all who trust in them” – understands this verse as a statement of fact rather than a request. What in the world does it mean? Why will pagans inevitably end up like their objects of worship? And, most importantly, what does that teach us about our own worship of the one G-d? Join David Nekrutman and Rabbi Wolicki to find out.
