Parsha in Progress

Judaism #53

Parsha in Progress is the latest podcast by Tablet Magazine. Perfect for anyone interested in the Bible, every other week hosts Rabbi Dov Linzer and author Abigail Pogrebin, an Orthodox rabbi and a Reform Jew, delve into a Biblical issue and story, and discuss how this ancient text takes on modern meaning and brings modern challenges. With humor, love, and insight, these focused discussions follow the schedule of the weekly parsha readings in synagogue.

    Love it!
    I go back to the episodes often to help unpack parashot. Very enjoyable. It is a part of my journey to embracing the textual aspect of my Yiddishkeit. It is comforting.

    Worth a listen, no new content
    Parsha in Progress is another Tablet production (like Unorthodox and Take One), this one a 10-minute discussion of the week’s Parsha between one Reform and one Orthodox rabbi. Production stopped in September 2020 but content is timeless.
  • ez does it.
    ** Snorkel & Scuba **
    Great show that both scratches the surface (snorkel) and takes a deep dive (scuba) of the weekly Parsha. If you dig Judaism, you’ll dig this podcast!

    Just the thing
    Just the thing you need to get back into learning about Judaism, and discovering what meaning being Jewish has for you.

    Fascinating conversation
    These short Torah discussions have been an integral part of my conversion process. Accessible, fun, occasionally life-altering.

    I enjoy this podcast
    I actually wish it was a little longer, 15-20 mins. But I love this bite sized bit of torah and their analyses and contributions. We aren't such different Jews after all. Kol hakavod.

    Fantastic discussion of the Torah portion of the week!
    Love the five and take between Abigail and the Rabbi!

    Traditional and modern
    I love the discussions on this podcast because Rabbi Dov and Abigail have a genial, respectful rapport and dialogue despite having viewpoints from traditional to liberal. The traditional viewpoints are never presented in a matter-of-fact or condescending manner. The only downside is that the podcast doesn’t cover every weekly parsha so there are gaps, which hopefully they cover next year. Otherwise, I love the dual perspectives without feeling like listening to mom and dad arguing.

    Interesting conversation
    Very interesting and respectful discussion be two Jews coming with different points of view. Abby challenges Dov and Doc challenges back. Wish it was longer.
