Harav Aharon Lichtenstein Parashat Vayetze Sichot Roshei Yeshiva
Harav Yehuda Amital Yaakov and the Stones "And Yaakov went out from Beer Sheva… and he slept over there… and he took from the stones of that place and placed them at his head…" (Bereishit 28:10-11) Sichot Roshei Yeshiva
Harav Yehuda Amital Vayetze: “And Yaakov Loved Rachel” In the Torah's description of the meeting between Yaakov and Rachel, we find an emphasis on the powerful human emotions that Yaakov experienced. Sichot Roshei Yeshiva
Harav Yaakov Medan Yaakov’s Love for Rachel Why did Yaakov love Rachel? And what were the complex dynamics of the relationship between Rachel and Leah after they married? Sichot Roshei Yeshiva
Harav Yaakov Medan Lavan’s Deceit Why did Yaakov have to work so long for his wives? How was he fooled by the switching of the sisters? And why did he not return home after the fourteen years were over? These questions are illuminated by an examination of the parallel between Lavan and Pharaoh. Sichot Roshei Yeshiva
Harav Yaakov Medan The Theft of the Terafim and the Covenant at Mitzpa-Gal’ed Why did Rachel steal her father's terafim? The commentaries have offered a number of explanations. In this shiur, we will suggest an additional possibility, and we will also consider Yaakov's response to Lavan's accusation. We will further probe the covenant made at Mitzpeh Gil'ad, which appears to have been violated years later by Bnei Yisrael. Sichot Roshei Yeshiva
