Parsha Podcasts: Eikev is pleased to bring you a curated selection of audio shiurim on Parshas Eikev

Uniformity and Diversity of Mitzvos

Rashi famously writes at the beginning of this week’s parsha that we must fulfill even those mitzvos “upon which a person treads with his heels.”

Seemingly, the perception that certain mitzvos are of less significance is incorrect. However, we find that Torah itself recognizes various denominations within mitzvos. This is attested to by the various types of punishment prescribed in the Torah, which reflect a difference in the severity of the various transgressions. So are all Mizvos equally important or is there real differences between them?
