Episode 8: Who is Poor and Who is Needy?
Psalms 113:7 describes G-d as raising the “poor” from the “dust,” and the “needy” from the “trash heap.” Is this seeming repetition merely poetic, or is the Psalmist transmitting a deeper message about G-d’s attitude towards the unfortunate? What does this teach us about the way we must interact with those less fortunate than ourselves? And what does any of this have to do with the movie Trading Places? Join David Nekrutman and Rabbi Pesach Wolicki to find out.
