Parsha of the Week: 
Ki Tetze: Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19
Judaism of the Week: Diaspora and Zionism

The passage of this week's parsha contains an onus for the people moving into the promised land and a threat of diaspora if they do not succeed. It's a wonderful place to stop and think about the implications since it has come to pass since this was written.
