Sotah 32: Blessings and Curses and Sharing One’s Pain

Chapter 7! Passages that are read out that can be recited in any language, as compared to those that need the Hebrew. Plus, a long description of the blessings and curses on Mount Gerizim and Eival. Plus, the difference between a mitzvah that has an utterance as compared to one that has both speaking and saying. What is to be said loud? And what quietly? Including the Amidah. Including one who is suffering – so people can pray on that person’s behalf.
