שיעורי טקסט Rav Gad Eldad “And with a strong hand he will drive them out of his land” In this shiur, we will consider the passivity of Bnei Yisrael in the process of their redemption. We will note that according to the original plan, Bnei Yisrael were supposed to be active participants, but because of their hesitation, Hashem completely took over the struggle - a point emphasized in His actions at the Yam Suf.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yoel Bin-Nun “By the way of the land of Pelishtim” vs. “By the way of the wilderness by the Yam Suf” The Source and Meaning of the Prohibition to Return to Egypt The first verse in Parashat Beshalach is very difficult to understand.

שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan The Giving of the Torah in the Sight of the People or in the Sight of Moshe In this shiur, we will address one of the central ambiguities regarding the account of the Revelation at Mount Sinai: Was the Revelation only to Moshe, or was it to the entire nation? We will construct a theory regarding what took place based on analysis of the verses and the views of the commentators.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Gad Eldad “Listen to me; I will give you counsel, and may God be with you” The account of Yitro's advice to Moshe appears to conclude with a "happy ending," indicating that Moshe successfully implemented his father-in-law's idea. However, study of the account of the appointment of the judges in Sefer Bamidbar indicates that Yitro's idea may not have been so successful after all. In this shiur, we will consider why that might be.
