Sichot Roshei Yeshiva
Teacher Title Abstract
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein “And All the Women Went Out After Her” Parashat Beshalach (especially as interpreted by the Gemara) and its haftara both present differing responses by men and women to oppression and deliverance.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan At the Sea’s Edge In this sicha, we discuss a number of elements in the parsha, including the camp at Ba’al Tzafon, the four groups among Bnei Yisrael, the prominence of the related words yira and re’iya in the story, and the connection between the splitting of the sea and the akeida.

שיעורי טקסט Harav Yehuda Amital A Complex Reality
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan To the Sea of Suf In this shiur, we will discuss a number of elements of the route taken by Bnei Yisrael as they left Egypt. Why did God lead them on a roundabout route, and how did this contribute to the people's attitude? Why did Pharaoh harden his heart and choose to chase them?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Aharon Lichtenstein Reflections Upon Birkot HaTorah (Part 1 of 2) Not surprisingly, few texts are as pregnant with concepts central to the definition of a yeshiva and its goals as birkot ha-Torah.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Aharon Lichtenstein Torah and Life
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yehuda Amital Yitro and the Receiving of the Torah After we read, in last week's parasha, about the Exodus from Egypt and the splitting of the sea, we would have expected this week's parasha to start with a description of the Revelation at Sinai and the receiving of the Torah. It is surprising, then, that this account is preceded by the story of Yitro. What does Yitro have to do with the unfolding of the great redemption that is being recounted in this series of parashot?

שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan When Were the Three Days of Preparation for Matan Torah? The date of the giving of the Torah is not stated explicitly in the Torah, and its connection with the festival of Shavuot requires some clarification.

שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Beit Mikdash and Beit Midrash When God revealed Himself to give the Torah, the Jewish people were overwhelmed. The substitutes for this experience, and the perpetuation of it, are the Temple and Torah study. Now that we no longer have a Temple, how should Torah study affect our lives?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan “You Shall Not Covet” This sicha explores multiple dimensions of the prohibition against coveting: its place in the Ten Commandments, its psychological and halakhic meaning, its broader ramifications, and its relation to other mitzvot concerning one's neighbor.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan “I am the Lord your God” The statement of "I am the Lord your God" has been the subject of much discussion among the commentators and those who count the mitzvot. In this shiur, we discuss various views regarding the nature of this command and its content, as well as its emphasis on the exodus from Egypt.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein The Beit Ha-mikdash and the Beit Ha-midrash The yeshiva world needs to establish a generation of scholars. Not only an elite cadre of talmidei hakhamim who will serve as the rabbis of the next generation, but also a significant class of educated ba'alei batim, for whom the Torah occupies a significant place in their lives.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Aharon Lichtenstein Reflections Upon Birkot HaTorah (Part 2 of 2) If this concept (of the intertwining of norm and yearning) is elucidated through the substance and sequence of entire berakhot, others are expressed via specific phrases or even a single word; and, of these, several may be noted. One is the term "lishmah" with which - in most current readings, although not, inter alia, the Rambam's - the body of "ve-ha'arev na" concludes.
