שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Parashat Noach: The Brotherhood of Man Parashat Noach begins with the story of the Flood and continues with the episode of the Tower of Bavel, which led to the dispersion of mankind. The mishna in Sanhedrin (10:1) compares the two, stating that the members of both generation are denied a portion in the World to Come. Nevertheless, our Sages noted a sharp contrast between these two stories.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yoel Bin-Nun Why is the Story of the Flood Doubled, Like the Story of Creation? In this shiur, we will discuss the significance of the Torah's dual presentation of the flood story, as reflected in the use of the names Elokim and the Tetragrammaton. We will demonstrate that the Torah's description further affirms the dual nature of the calendar (lunar-solar), and we will note how the dual presentation continues until the end of the story.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Gad Eldad “And We Shall Make for Ourselves a Name” – Why Not? The story of the Tower of Bavel is one of the great mysteries of the Torah. What was so terrible about the construction of this tower that God was led to thwart the plans of its builders? In this shiur, we will focus on the attempt to "make ourselves a name" and why this goal was deemed unacceptable.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan The Allowance Granted to Noach and His Descendants to Eat Meat After the flood, Noach is given permission to eat meat. Does this represent a step forward or a step back in human spiritual evolution? How do the new rules of eating meat relate to the sacrificial service and to the covering of blood after ritual slaughter?

שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Parashat Lekh Lekha: Who Was Avraham? Although the documentation of events in the life of Avraham is relatively detailed, we are nonetheless confronted with a number of basic questions: Who actually was Avraham? Why was he chosen? What is the nature of the legacy that he passed on to the entire Jewish nation? How should this affect our lives?
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yoel Bin-Nun The Covenant Between the Parts and the Covenant of Circumcision In this shiur, we will contrast the two covenants that Hashem made with Avraham and evaluate how they present different perspectives on the importance of Eretz Yisrael. We will discuss the geographical borders of Eretz Yisrael that are implicit in these covenants, as well as their halakhic implications.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Gad Eldad “Let there be no strife, I pray you, between me and you” – Avraham’s Separation from Lot Parashat Lekh Lekha describes Avraham's relationship with his nephew, Lot, who accompanies him to Canaan and later down to Egypt, only to separate from his uncle when given the opportunity. In this shiur, we will discuss this relationship and how it plays a role in the development of the story.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan The Beginning of Avraham’s Journey The Midrash describes Avraham as a fierce opponent of idolatry, smashing idols and being cast into a furnace for his trouble; however, there is no mention of this backstory in the Torah itself. Where do Chazal get this idea from? How does this relate to later biblical figures who challenge paganism, such as Gidon and Chananya, Mishae'el and Azarya?
