שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Vayikra: "I Have Formed You; You Are My Servant"
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Tzav - Shabbat Hagadol: "The Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord" Moshe's role in the exodus from Egypt is passed on to Eliyahu, and just as Moshe parted from Israel to the wilderness of Chorev and returned to redeem them, so too Eliyahu who also reached an encounter with God at Chorev will return in the future and bring to the redemption of Israel.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Shabbat Chol Ha-Mo'ed Pesach: Shir Ha-Shirim What is the relationship between the dod and the ra'aya after the initial failure? The book answers that the dod did not forget his beloved, nor did he abandon her forever, nor did he even change her status in the wake of what had happened. Great is repentance out of love which draws man near to the Shekhina, and great is God's love and compassion for Israel that bears them for all time.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Walking Between Fire and Snow The connection between the haftara and the parasha of Shemini (II Shemuel 6:1-7:17) is quite clear; both describe the tragic deaths of individuals who drew near to the holy, thus spoiling the joy of the dedication ceremony in the framework of which the calamity occurred.

שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein "And [Eliyahu] Stood in the Entrance of the Cave" The Recurring Deliberation between Eliyahu and God On Seclusion and Involvement In this shiur, we will study the haftara of Parashat Pinchas (I Melakhim 18:46-19:21), which describes the drama that plays out in Eliyahu's soul in response to Israel's impaired spiritual state. The story's plot revolves around Eliyahu's desire to withdraw from society out of jealousy for God, a process that reaches its climax when he encounters God at Chorev. What is the impetus for this story? Does Eliyahu change his position in the end?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Pinchas: Yirmiyahu and Moshe - Two Models of Prophecy
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Matot- Masei: Complementary Reproaches Over the next two weeks, we will be reading two haftarot of doom that deal with Israel's abandonment of God, the first taken from the beginning of the book of Yirmiyahu and the second from the beginning of the book of Yeshayahu. Apart from the prophecies of consecration, these two haftarot constitute the opening prophecies of these books. We wish today to compare and contrast the two rebukes in the hope that this will shed light on these prophecies and allow us to better understand the causes of the destruction.

שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Ekev: The Difference Between Nachamu and the Haftara for Parashat Ekev The haftara for Parashat Ekev (Yeshayahu 49:14-51:3) constitutes another link in the chain of prophecies of consolation, and is one of the longest among them. As we shall see, the prophet struggles with several issues, and presents the people with a variety of perspectives in response to and as a consolation for their tribulations, thus necessitating a more expansive treatment.

שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Shabbat Shuva The haftara “Shuva Yisrael” depicts repentance stemming from trouble and distress, as opposed to “Dirshu Hashem be-himatze’o,” which presents a superior form of repentance. Why, then, is “Shuva Yisrael” read between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur?
