Shoftim Chapter 7 - Rosh Chodesh Iyyar- (Shabbos April 29)

Shoftim - Chapter 7 with Rashi (English)
(prepared by Rivky Krestt)
Gideon furthers his message as a messenger of God defending the faith through his famous “water test.” (No we aren’t talking about 17th century Salem, Massachusetts!)  With a small army, Gideon attacks Midian at night and confuses the enemy to win the conflict.


Points to ponder:

  1. Why message is sent when the Navi chooses to call Gideon “Yerubaal”?

  2. Why are there too many people?  Isn’t it good to have a large army to win a war?

  3. Why does Gideon need a dream to give him confidence?
