Engaged Torah Learning Initiative: Class #4
In which we wonder why the Torah does not tell us about Abraham’s youth and first 75 years of his life. And in which we examine the notion that the events in which our forefathers participated, created a change in the fabric of reality and cause a cyclical force in which those events would recur in the lives of their descendants.
In which we discuss Chapter 12, verses 3-7 and discover that Avrham and Sarah “gave birth” to people in Charan.
Second Class of the Engaged Torah Learning Initiative.
An analyses of Gen. Ch 12 Verse 2 and Rashi’s commentary therein. In two parts.
In which we discuss the nature of G-d’s blessing to Avraham.
In which we discover a new paradigm defining the forefathers of the Jewish people.
Introductory Class to the Engaged Torah Learning Initiative.
Lech Licha Ch 12: Vs 1-3
In which we analyze G-d’s message to Abraham to leave his homeland. G-d’s verbosity and vague way of commanding him are perplexing. [Sources, Rashi, Sifsei Chachamim and Gur Aryeh].
