Artist's statement:
The Hebrew word shoftim - meaning 'judges' or 'magistrates' - defines the theme of this important portion. Issues of jurisprudence and social ethics predominate, including guidelines for judges and courts of law, elders, kings, prophets, and priests, all of who have a role in maintaining a just society. Right up front, the text identifies the most important characteristic of a judge: the ability to remain impartial and objective. The shofet must not play favorites and must always resist bribes and other forms of influence. The Torah again prohibits any forms of idolatrous practices, which are seen as the greatest perversion of God's justice. The notion of a Monarch is discussed as a possibility when entering into the Promised Land. The Israelites can only appoint a King who has been selected by God, and the King must have an unyielding commitment to God, Torah, and the people of Israel. He too must not be distracted by material wealth or foreign influence, which might cloud his judgment. Moses next addresses the Levites and emphasizes their special place among the people. They have both privilege and responsibility. Moses then turns from the priests to the notion of prophecy, and discusses how to distinguish between a true prophet and a false prophet. No other forms of divination or sorcery can be used to determine God's will, and all false prophets and methods of divination must be wiped out. Cities of refuge and the importance of proper witnesses are discussed. The parasha ends with a discussion of proper approaches to warfare. Justice is to be maintained at all times, even times of war.
