Dr. Brachi Elitzur "Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not their own" Why the decree of exile? Midrashei Chazal offer many instances of judgmental evaluations of biblical characters that are different – sometimes even quite contrary – to the impression we receive from a reading of the plain level of the biblical narrative.

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? Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
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. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
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. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
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?
