Not For the Birds

Rabbi David Kasher

Shabbat Ki Teitzei 5781 Sermon. This week’s Torah reading, Ki Teitzei has more laws in it than any other Parsha. From laws of war to laws of farming, it’s a veritable laundry list of Mitzvot. But of all the laws on the list, one catches the attention of the commentators as the strangest and most random of them all: Kan Tzipor, The Law of the Bird’s Nest! What in the world is it coming to teach us?
