Remembering What Amalek Did in the Way

We are commanded in Deuteronomy 25:17 to remember what Amalek did. As the Israelites were brought out with signs and wonders, God made it evident He was with them. Even though that was the case, Amalek still came and attacked the Israelites. Israel had to take decisive action themselves to resolve the situation. What might we consider from this situation?

The Torah Does Not Command a Temple

Read with me what the Torah says about the rituals and sacrifices. These commands are very specific and precise, and we wouldn't substitute a bull for a goat or a fish for a dove. We should also recognize WHERE the Torah tells us to do these rituals.

Torah Legal System: 2 or 3 Witnesses

[Aleksandr Sigalov:] Torah's justice system is most certainly righteous and absolutely civilized. I think normal people would agree with me that keeping a murderer on death row for 10 years and then executing him by questionable means is much less humane than quick stoning. Torah system proposes swift and severe punishments for some offences for a good reason - so that people would see and fear not to do these horrible things.
