Rav Yoel Bin-Nun The Revolution in the Conceptualization of Teshuva in the Halakhic and Historical Perception of Rav Yehuda Alkalai In this shiur, we focus on Rav Yehuda Alkalai's unique approach to the concept of teshuva and how the return to the Land of Israel is not a reward for repentance, but a prerequisite for returning to God.

Rav Yoel Bin-Nun The Testimony of the Song In this shiur, we examine the unique message of the longest poem in the Torah, the song of Haazinu. How does its encapsulation of Jewish history differ from other prophecies in Sefer Devarim? Why and how are the Jewish people ultimately redeemed, and why is the Exodus omitted? Haazinu's powerful testimony still holds meaning for us. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
