שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Parashat Vayera: Avraham Established the Morning Prayer This week we will concentrate on Avraham’s religious commitment and devotion. Of course, the most obvious example is the akeida, in which Avraham, in a profound act of faith, is asked to sacrifice not only his son, but his moral teachings as well. I prefer, however, a less obvious and probably less known example.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Gad Eldad “And God Remembered Avraham, and He Sent Lot” – Behind the Scenes of the Rescue in Sedom Avraham's argument with God regarding the possibility of sparing Sedom is difficult to understand, as is the absence of the mention of Lot from the discussion. What was Avraham trying to accomplish, and did he succeed in the end?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan The Rescue of Lot and His Daughters The episode of Lot's rescue from Sedom raises many interesting questions: Why does Rashi connect this event to Pesach? Why did Lot's daughters think the world was destroyed? And where did they get that fateful bottle of wine?
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yoel Bin-Nun Who is Worthy of Being Chosen? What is the implication of the fact that Avraham was "chosen" by God? In this shiur, we will explore how this chosen-ness affected how God related to Avraham's pleas for justice, as opposed to the pleas of Iyov.

שיעורי טקסט Rav Yair Kahn Parashat Chayei Sara: This is Hashem's Doing The singular fondness for "the conversations of the servant" is a result of it being a simple human story. It lacks great nature confounding miracles. However, it contains a breathtaking human and religious drama, a drama in which man encounters Hashem within the natural order.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Yoel Bin-Nun The Field and the Cave: Yitzchak in the Land In this shiur, we will discuss the reason for Avraham's adamant insistence on buying the field of Efron the Chiti, which reflects his desire to have a foothold in Eretz Yisrael. We will further discuss how Yitzchak's lifestyle reflects his similar desire.
שיעורי טקסט Rav Gad Eldad “And if a stranger sojourn with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong" The Purchase of Me'arat Ha-Machpela In Parashat Chayei Sarah, we read of the negotiations between Avraham and Efron regarding a burial plot for Sarah. Why does the Torah repeat that Avraham bought the plot, and why does Avraham insist on paying for the entire plot and field instead of accepting them as a present.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan The Oath Taken by Avraham's Servant In this portion, Avraham has his servant Eliezer swear to find his son Yitzchak a wife, without letting him leave the country. Why is this so important? What does family mean for Avraham, and what truly is his native land?
