Shoftim Chapter 12 - 6 Iyyar (Thursday May 4)

Shoftim - Chapter 12 with Rashi (English)

The flaw with Yiftach’s leadership is further emphasized by perek 12 when the country breaks out in civil war. Yiftach’s method of systematically pinpointing those from the tribe of Efraim in order to punish them for their recalcitrance in the war from the previous perek shows the disunity of the tribes of Israel. The burning question remains: if only there were a unifying leader! This chaos is clearly destroying the nation.
