Weekly Unscrolled Torah Portion: Mishpatim
Writer Ben Greenman depicts this week’s Unscrolled with an engaging short story about a group of friends who have been playing cards weekly for years. One of the people in the group is Moses.
“Moses was our age, maybe a few years older, but stretched out there on the floor he looked ancient, like the next change wouldn’t be for the better, like he was maybe already being returned to the earth.”
